Students understand tempos much better when they relate to something they see every day - speed limit signs! I have rounded the tempo markings to easily remembered markings. Largo - 40, Andante - 80, Allegro - 120, Presto - 160 (Beats per minute!). Enlarge to 11x17 and laminate for a true "street sign" feel!
Use a metronome and beanbag and sing your favorite songs at speeds from 40-160! It turns out 40 is the hardes and 160 is the MOST fun!
