We are excited to share our new rhythm piece for ‘Little Hands On Rhythm® – Activity Games.. These extension pieces will take students to the next level of rhythm reading. Here is an example of a rhythm built by one of my upper elementary students. Having the basic beat above to define the note and rest values in the rhythm, helps students to correctly play the rhythms they are are making. Student can further challenge their abilities by tapping the basic beat with their foot when playing or clapping the rhythm. For most students tapping the beat while performing the rhythm actually helps them perform the rhythm correctly.
