Product Description
Stocking Stuffers - Rhythm Game syncopa: This set is perfect for winter time in the music room, before Christmas break! Project onto the board. Your students can use Koosh balls, or tap/click on the stocking that they want to peek into. They will be presented with a rhythm pattern. If they get the pattern right, the get to click to see what was inside the stocking. If they get it wrong, they will see an "Oops! Try again!" page and will be redirected back to the stockings. This can be played as a team game or individually.

I plan to use this as an individual rhythm reading assessment during the last few weeks before Christmas break.

This file includes the following concepts:
- ta, titi, ta rest, half note, tiri-tiri, ti-tiri, tiri-ti, syncopa (ti ta ti)

This file may be used with any system for reading rhythms.
I have included BOTH a file with stick notation only as well as standard notation with note heads to give you the option for what will work best with your kids.

Please let me know if there is another rhythm concept you want to see added!

I have included game directions as well as a list of all the rhythm patterns included.

If you do not have the capability to project onto a board, you could print and laminate just the rhythm pages and use magnets or tape to put them on the board for an assessment. If they get it right they could come draw a card out of a real stocking that has their present written on it.

This whole file is included in my Stocking Stuffers - Rhythm Game (Bundled Set)
