So, instead of doing something that would prepare me for the first week of school... I decided to work on a little project for centres. Oh well! Here it is:
Ice Cube Tray Rhythms
This is yet another idea inspired by classroom teachers! Ice cube trays are often used for ten frame math work and I thought, "Hey! I want to come up with an idea using them for the Music room!"
I went to Dollarama and found something even better: An ice cube tray divided in groups of THREE! I immediately thought it could be used for practising 3/4 metre.
And it's blue! Yay!
I also grabbed small white circular sticker labels.
And I picked up a few baggies of glass stones.
Once I was back home, I got started.
Using a black pen, I wrote rhythms on the STICKY side of the stickers.
Next, I stuck those guys to the flat bottom of the stones.
And voila! All ready for the kids to practise working with rhythms in 3/4!
And now maybe on to doing something that will prepare me for next week!
