If you're willing to do a little crafting, here's a nice little project!
This is all of the parts of a rhythm tree ready to be printed and cut. It includes the following:
- Four sets of two eighth notes
- Four quarter notes
- Two half notes
- One whole note
- Two four-note sets of sixteenth notes (print twice)
- One of each rest (whole down to sixteenth)
- Ta--- (whole note), Ta- (half note x2), Ta (x4), Ti-ti (x4), ti-pi-ti-pi (x4)
-Our Rhythm Tree title
I would recommend cutting each note out, and backing it with the correct vocalization, then laminating. In the example I did the vocalizations and notes separately and attached with yarn. I then did each rest by itself in a column. However, I could see making a reversible rhythm tree too!
This is a great addition to the classroom in helping students understand rhythmic relationships and music math.
