LEARNING RHYTHMIC PATTERNS - 1/2 BEATS POWER POINT (Little Kids Rock)

(0)
I have built this powerpoint using the 1/2 beat rhythms from ‘Little Kids Rock’. It is really great for engaging students with a mindful rhythm activity of counting, then counting and clapping, then clapping the rhythms. It builds confidence and knowledge in understanding how to use and create rhythms. It is even more enjoyable when used with a ‘style’ or pop music to help the tempo stay steady. I have inserted a simple guide to notation above the number of beats to introduce students to the concept of written notation. I highly recommend giving this a go with your key stage 2 and 3 classes.

This resource includes 4 worksheets. The ‘listening mat’ has all the information included and can be used as a listening aid when you are teaching students to talk about the structure of the music. The other three worksheets support students’ growth of understanding as they become able to understand and use the terms from memory. Or they can be presented as a differentiated task. They are suitable for use with GCSE and older , or able KS3 students. These worksheets can be used as starter or plenary activities, or as a main aid for a listening activity. They can be laminated and re-used as required, or can be set as home work.

UNDERSTANDING DURATION: A collection of rhythm creators

(0)
A collection of my rhythm creators all in one package. Students are required to create their own rhythms using the given symbols of note lengths and rests to support them as they learn to compose their own rhythmic ideas. Having all of these worksheets in one place allows for flexible differentiation all done for you. This collection also includes a power point with instructions on how students might go about creating their own rhythmic ideas. There is also a demo slide included for the purpose of teacher modeling

UNDERSTANDING DURATION: advanced rhythm creator

(0)
A fantastic and flexible resource on one A4 sheet with an additional instruction sheet if needed. Students are required to create their own rhythms using the given symbols of note lengths and rests to support them as they learn to compose their own rhythmic ideas. This has more choice than my ‘basic’ rhythm creator worksheet and provides differentiation for the classroom. This is purposefully missing a time signatures section to avoid confusion. Teachers can direct students on which time signatures to use as and when they teach them.

Great for any part in a lesson to check students understanding, and also good for homework and revision practice.
