TRICK OR TREAT!!!! This file is sure to be a hit with your students as they choose a trick or treater, then choose if they want a “trick” or a ”treat.” When they pick “treat” they read an 8 beat pattern already notated for them. When they pick a “trick” they either derive the meter of the rhythm they see from the bar lines or improvise known rhythm patterns on missing beats.
Included in this file:
** 2 interactive PDF gamesone with note heads and one without note heads
** The files include reading 8 beat patterns in both 2/4 and 4/4 meter, as well as improvising (“fill in the beats) and deriving 2/4 and 4/4 meter.
Rhythms included in this file:
ta (quarter note)
ti-ti (barred eighth notes)
tika-tika (sixteenth notes)
ti-tika (one eighth-two sixteenths)
tika-ti (two sixteenths-one eighth)
