Music Lessons for the Young Child: RHYTHM LESSON 9 - Notation with rests

It is now time to add rests to our music. This is basically the same lesson as lesson 8 but it includes the quarter rests. The addition of the rest means there are a lot more options for grouping the notes in sets of 4. Just a reminder that the rest gets one beat just as the quarter note does. Whenever the children are reading and clapping music it is important that the rest be "felt" even though there is no sound. For this lesson you may want to add instruments for variety. I always told my…

Excelente idea y recurso, por medio de este bingo los niños deben distinguir cada figura musical desde su grafía, además combina otros elementos importantes de la gramática musical.

As a review of rhythm notation, I always play BINGO with my kiddos! I made a SMARTboard presentation during my first year of teaching and print/laminated boards. Now that I'm older and wiser (and with iPads), I put the bingo boards in Dropbox instead and have the images saved to the iPads. Typically, we use a Whiteboard App to cross off symbols. After playing BINGO many times, I've noticed the Whiteboard App (FREE) I was using had too many ads and tons of pop ups that distracted my kids…

Blew my kid's minds when they realized that the solfege pitches were the same as our instrument letters. :)

So, I absolutely LOVE the anchor charts I’ve been seeing on blogs and on Pinterest. Apparently, anchor charts are supposed to be minimalistic so as not to confuse the children with extra inf…

Music dynamics Great assessment sheet for K-1 "voice types" and where to use them.

I’ve been told that this is the teacher’s mantra when it comes to resources. Thanks to Pinterest, it is even easier to find other people’s fantastic ideas and adapt them for your…

Elementary Music Methods: Real Life Edition: Pizza Love... I have a bunch of pizza fraction games that I use for teaching rhythms. This will be a great tie-in.

I have been struggling with 2nd grade recently. I have two 2nd grade classes who are just perfect little angels and I have two other 2nd grade classes who are little demons. It is really hard to plan for them because I can never anticipate what the evil classes are going to do! I was searching through the Music K-8 CD's and I found Pizza Love. I remember singing this song in elementary music and when I listened to it, I remembered all the words. So I decided to create a pizza lesson for 2nd…
