The Rhythm Rainbow is by far the most valuable tool in my classroom. Originally conceived as a way to keep my rhythm cards organized, it has grown into an expanding set of games and rhythm challenges that motivate my students to continue to improve their skill. This document includes the directions to make your own rainbow as well as 3 proven games to play. The rhythm rainbow would be of value to any music teacher seeking to improve the rhythm reading skill of their classes or ensembles. God forbid my classroom ever catches fire, I'm running in to save my rhythm rainbow (and maybe my ukulele...:)!!!!!
