1) Transportation Ta and Ti-ti Lesson: A Powerpoint presentation that introduces ta and ti-ti to students. Slides include images of vehicles. Students discover the number of syllables in each "vehicle" word and match it to the correct rhythm. Also includes four beat patterns of images and rhythms. Powerpoint presentation features standard notation and stick notation.
2)Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Rhythm Matching Game
: This transportation themed matching game is a quick assessment activity for younger students. Students must match the transportation images (based on syllables) with the correct rhythms. Just print on card stock, laminate, and cut on the dotted lines. To make the game more challenging, play memory game. First, turn cards face down and one student turns over two cards to see if they match. If they don't, the cards are flipped back over and the next student goes. Continue until students have matched all the cards. The matching game features standard notation and stick notation. It also includes a printer-friendly version.
3) Right or Wrong: An interactive game in which students determine if rhythms match the given images or not. Divide groups into four teams. Each team receives a "Right" and a "Wrong" card. The teacher will display the vehicle images and rhythms. If there is a match, the groups will hold up "right." However, if it doesn't match, the students not only hold up the "wrong" card, but also must write in the correct rhythm. Printer-friendly version included as well. Standard and stick notation both included.
4. Rhythm Racers: A relay race game that requires students to find the correct rhythm spoken or played by the teacher. Standard notation and stick notation are both included.
5. Worksheets: 14 worksheets are also included. In this variety of worksheets, students will sort the vehicles under ta or titi based on the syllables, circle the rhythm that they hear, write the rhythm that they hear, trace the ta's or ti-ti's, match the images with the correct rhythm, and much more!!!
