We are learning about rhythms

Here is Mr. Strickler's 4th grade class in music.  One of the skills we are improving on is how to count rhythms.  One of the ways we do this is by playing a game called Rhythm Bingo, which is what this class is preparing to do.  In it, the teacher starts by clapping and counting out loud one of the rhythms on the student's card.  The class then echoes the teacher's pattern by clapping and counting, then finds and marks it on their card.  When a student gets a Bingo, they get to clap and count the rhythms in their bingo, then receive a prize.  The 4th grade will be able to track their progress with a pre-test, a mid-year test, and a post-test given at the end of the school year.  That way, they can be on their way to being rhythm experts!
