There are 6 Rhythm Reading PowerPoints included in this Zip file. No music is included! You must purchase that yourself. What IS included is 4 beat rhythm patterns with clapping, movement and body percussion suggestions! These are actual presentations I use in my classroom. We love them.
The songs each PowerPoint was designed for are the following:
1 - Do You Love Me by The Contours
2 - Down On The Corner by Creedence Clearwater Revival
3 - Hippy, Hippy Shake by The Swinging Blue Jeans
4 - Nothing From Nothing by Billy Preston
5 - Sing, A Song by Earth, Wind and Fire
6 - Will It Go Round In Circles by Billy Preston
Each rhythm reading PowerPoint is timed to be playing with the music suggested. When I use these presentations, I import the music and record it so that it plays automatically. You are welcome to do that or use the number cues in the bottom right hand corner of each slide. The number is for the sets of 4 beats.
These PowerPoints were made in Apple’s Keynote program and exported as a PowerPoints. Please feel free to adjust the presentations to meet your needs. I suggest purchasing the song and importing into this PowerPoint. If you don’t know how to do that, click on the “Help” tab in the Tool Bar. You can then record the presentations by going to “Slide Show” in the tool bar and then “Record Slide Show.” The number of measures of 4 counts each is located in the bottom right hand corner of each slide. You are welcome to adjust that according to your needs as well!
I hope you enjoy these rhythm reading presentations as much as my students and I do! I use them every day during the school year! Please feel free to make them easier or more difficult as you see fit!
