Rhythm Riot

Students learn to perform rhythms with ease and independence while having fun!

Exposing students to many different combinations of notes and rests, students clap or perform the given rhythm on instruments.  Adding the tempo button and setting the metronome and then performing the rhythm at the given tempo helps students gain an understanding of the effect that tempo has on the speed of the notes.  Rhythms are color-coded by time signature on both the calling card and the game boards making it easier to find the called rhythm. Be the first to get a riot, which is a row, column, or diagonal row of covered rhythms to win the game!

Note Wordy Spelling Bee

Your students will be buzzing about this new classroom note reading game!

Choose the range of notes you wish to drill (treble, bass or combination).  Treble and bass may be displayed side by side. Players must identify the notes and choose which one of that particular letter to mark off on their game board.  Points are scored for completing words. Smaller words are worth less than larger words. This game is self-correcting and will not allow students to mark incorrect answers.  In addition, they are only allowed one chance to answer for each card to ensure they aren’t simply guessing.

The game ends when either:

  • one player has completed 5 of the 10 words on their game board.  Then, the person with the highest score in their honey pot is the winner.
  • one player has completed all of their words.  The first person to complete their words is the winner.
  • the teacher may choose a time limit for the game and the player with the most points is the winner.
