Rhythm Words!

What started as a new way of practicing rhythm turned into a unique way to put together a piece of music! Using words and syllables like “POW” and “ChuggaChugga,” students have been gaining a stronger understanding of rhythm and note value.  We then took our new rhythm words and used them to practice reading short, one measure phrases.  Later we began layering the phrases on top of one another and came up with some great sounds. Check out our 4th graders demonstrating below!
