I love to learn and review in fun ways, especially at the beginning of the year! I can do this game with my 2nd through 6th graders and later in the year with my 1st graders after they have learned the level one rhythms. Kids can run around to find rhythms or compete in teams.

This includes:

• Directions for how to play the game

• 3 levels of rhythms (It could be more if you teach these rhythms in other grades)

  -Level 1- quarter, 2 eighth notes, quarter rest

  -Level 2- All of level 1 plus ahalf note and 4 sixteenth notes

  -Level 3- All of the above plus syncopations (eighth/quarter/eighth) and eighth/2 sixteenths and 2 sixteeenths/eighth.

• JPEG's of each level for making a Promethean board or smart board chart

• Labels for organizing your X's for up to 6 levels if you teach these rhythms in different levels or grades.

PRINTING HELP- I have found that often my PDF files won’t print at school from my Mac. I go to the Macintosh HD icon and open it. Under Applications, open the Preview program. Then open up the file that you want to print. It works every time for me. Please contact me if you have any other questions or problems. seamonsfloatingdowntheriver@gmail.com
