Classroom Lesson Break Game - 4 corners

(0)
Signs to use in the '4 corners' game. A great game to play when students need a break and need to 'move n groove'! How to play ... Pin the signs on the wall in the 4 corners of the room. Students dance while music is played. When music stops, children must go and stand in one corner. A card is pulled from a deck. The card is called out and all children standing in that corner (ie hearts, diamonds, spades, or clubs) are out and need to sit down. Continue playing until 1 student remains. When down to 4 children, make sure 1 child is in each corner. Less than 4 children, you can play 'ends' or 'colours'. Have fun. Enjoy this freebie. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Music - 4 beat rhythm cards

Music - 4 beat rhythm cards

(1)
If you're wanting to teach basic rhythm in the classroom then this is the resource for you! Simple, easy to use and your students will have a fun time. The resource has everything in colour, and also in black and white. The notation looked at is kept simple: Crotchet, quaver and rest. This resource includes: * Rhythm Grid A and B - using pear and cherry picture symbols * Rhythm Grid A and B - using regular music notation * 4-beat rhythm cards (24 in total) * Student template (for composing own 4-beat rhythms) * Reference charts You can use body percussion, or percussion instruments. I use CHOPSTICKS. Students can either have one chopstick each and tap it on their desk, or two chopsticks and tap them together. The 'class chopstick orchestra' makes a lovely sound and I have found that students of all ages absolutely love it. The chopsticks are very cheap to buy and easy to store away in your cupboard when not in use. Introduce one rhythm card at a time and gradually join them together (in a line or in a circle (like a clock face). Once your students have grasped the basics, they can join another classmate to compose their own rhythm (eg 16 beats) and perform it to another group or the whole class. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
