This product includes a PDF download and Smart Notebook file. The PDF has 26 different 4 beat rhythm patterns to use in centers in the music classroom. Students use the cards to make a 4 measure pattern and record the pattern on the included worksheet. Students can then play the rhythm sentences they created on percussion instruments.
The Smart Notebook file is for use with a Smartboard. Students drag the train cars into a line and then the class can clap the rhythm pattern together.
You do not have to have a Smartboard to use the centers. The Smartboard activity serves as a great introduction for the centers.
