Miss White Had a Fright...I would make this so that it could be laminated and the students could draw in beat lines underneath the rhythms...and the opposite...make the rhythms using icons so that the students could put the icons in the correct places on the beat lines...good activity for Practice part of Kodaly lesson plan
I decided I wanted to change things up a bit. I purchased 10 Home Depot buckets. Added neon tape and then put the same neon tape on some rhythm sticks for flare and reinforcement. The kids sit on one bucket and play the other. It's a great change! The buckets create different sounds depending on where you hit them. It teaches kids to alternate/coordinate hands while reading and saying rhythms. I teach over 1,000 students ages K-5th. The drums were a hit! (Literally).
