Love is in the air! Valentines Rhythm Tic Tac Toe is just what you need to get your first and second graders in the holiday spirit. This is more than just a fun game, it is a sequentially designed processing lesson to understand quarter note and beamed eighths. This colorful friendly pdf is tied into the first and second-grade curriculum, and as such, I only cover four different rhythm possibilities: Ta Ta Ti Ti Ta, Ti Ti Ta Ta, Ti Ti Ti Ti Ti Ti Ta, and Ti Ti Ta Ti Ti Ta. These are the focus rhythms for second grade. They learn to speak them, play them, read them, and hear them. I use this pdf in conjunction with our Orff ensemble. Students play each presented pattern on the xylophones using chord tones before we play the tic tac toe game. You can also print the colorful rhythm slides as rhythm word wall posters! I have included 1 page of printable rhythm flashcards, using combinations of quarter and beamed eighths, for low tech learning time. I hope you enjoy and are able to use this Valentine's Rhythm Tic Tac Toe Product! This is presented as a 19-page pdf to preserve rhythmic notation. Coupled with rhythm copying, you can easily use this for a complete 30-minute lesson.
