This set includes a rhythm slides and ladder game board, printable game pieces, and directions for playing the Slides and Ladder Game. This is the Half Note, Half Rest Quarter Note, Quarter Rest, and Eighth Note Edition. You will need to provide your own dice.
Students will roll a dice and then move their marker that many spaces. They must read the rhythm pattern that is on the square they land on. If they do not perform it correctly, as determined by their group members, they must move back to where they were before rolling. If they land on a ladder and perform correctly, they will climb up to the higher square. If they land on a slide, they will slide back down to the square it directs to. The first one to the end is the winner of the game!
This is to be performed in small groups for 2-4 students. Great for station work or whole class small group work. Also great for a music substitute if students are familiar with the rhythm patterns.
