This bundle includes the 1st and 2nd grade Rhythm Rockstar slideshows, each available separately for individual download. The bundle will eventually also include 3rd and 4th grade files. Download the bundle now for only $3.00 and receive the additional 2 files for free when I update the file!
Each grade level file will open as a PowerPoint Show (not editable).
The first grade file includes 30 different 4-beat rhythms using quarter notes, eighth notes, and quarter rests.
The second grade file includes 81 different 4-beat rhythms using quarter notes, eighth notes, quarter rest, half note, and sixteenth note group (takadimi or tikitiki).
There are 3 rhythms on each slide but only one rhythm at a time will show up on the screen. (Use the mouse or arrow keys to advance to the next rhythm.)
The rhythms are presented in order of difficulty, with a staircase to help keep track of the student's or class's progress. A cute star graphic goes up one stair on the visual once each time you master a level of rhythms.
This slideshow makes an excellent rhythm warm-up for the beginning of class or it can be used for your favorite rhythmic activities, games, and assessments. You could keep track of how far into the slideshow each class gets throughout the year and make it a grade-level competition. You could even print the slides as a full-page each and cut them apart for flash cards. The possibilities are many!
If you do not teach rhythmic reading with this progression of notes, please let me know and I would be happy to rearrange the slides for you. The progression is as follows:
1st: Eighth note pair, quarter note, quarter rest
2nd: Review above, add half note and sixteenth notes
