Kindergarten Composing

This week, the kindergarten students are working on composing with quarter notes and eighth notes. We clapped rhythms with our rhythm nicknames (ta and ti-ti) last week. This week, after practicing longer rhythms, each student got two pieces of paper. We wrote ta on one and put ti-ti on the other. Then, we worked with a partner to create a 4 beat rhythm. After performing these rhythms for the class, we moved to groups of 4 to create longer rhythms. One group from each class who performed their rhythm well and showed good audience membership was able to perform their rhythm a second time for the class on hand drums!
