These rhythm of the week worksheets are each a half sheet size - perfect for a quick weekly check in the music ensemble classroom. These worksheets come with varying time signatures and rhythmic difficulties and are easy to implement into your classroom.
In my own beginning band room, students complete these each week and turn them in to me on Thursdays. The following week I select one student-composed rhythm each day and write it on the board (with the student composer's name next to it!) and use it in our daily warm-up routine. The students love seeing and hearing their compositions in class, and using this has helped to create a culture of student leadership and ownership in our band.
If you have questions on how these could be used, please email me and I would love to discuss the possibilities with you!
