These tempo cards include Italian terms, symbols, and English definitions. They may be printed in two formats: (1) with a bold black border (sharp, great for word wall or bulletin board) and (2) without a border (economical printing for activities; plain text can be mounted on a preferred border).
Suggested uses: Post cards on a word wall. Create a bulletin board. Have students sort/order the tempo terms from slowest to fastest (or vice versa). Have students match the Italian terms to their English definitions. Have students match beats per minute cards to Italian terms. Have students practice conducting meters/patterns at various tempos with a metronome. Have students draw a tempo card and conduct the class in singing or playing a familiar folksong at the tempo selected. Explore/ create and map tempo changes in music selections.
Check out my dynamics cards (free) which go very well with this tempo set.
