I have these rhythms on magnets on my whiteboard so I can put up individual rhythms for each grade as they come in my room! Can also be used as flashcards or on a bulletin board to display rhythms.
Each rhythm card shows the formal name (i.e. Quarter Note), the nickname ("ta"), the number of beats, and the number of sounds. In my classroom, I use the following nicknames:
Quarter note - ta
8ths - ti-ti
Half note - tooo
16ths - tikatika
Whole note - to-o-o-oe
8th/16th combos - ti-tika/tika-ti
Dotted quarter/half - tahm/tooom
Dotted 8th+16th - tim-ka
If you would like a set which includes other nicknames for your classroom, shoot me an email and I can get that custom made for you at no extra cost!
Let me know if you enjoy this set and if you would like other colors/sets in the future!
