I love doing the folk dance, "Sasha" with my kiddos! Sometimes, however circumstances might keep you from doing the dance. Maybe you don't have enough room, or maybe your kiddos can't deal with the movement on that particular day. This rhythm stick activity is great for those times. You can also have students try to figure out the rhythms they are playing and turn it into a reinforcement for quarters, eighths and halves. I hope you enjoy!
