Reading Rhythms

The Grade 1/2/3 students are also reviewing how to read, speak, play and notate three rhythms in various patterns (Quarter note - "Ta", two Eighth notes - "Ti-Ti", and a Quarter rest - "Shh").
We played the "Squishy Toss" game to help us practice reading these rhythms! Each student threw one of our fabulous squishies at the Smartboard which was covered in colourful circles. The circle that was hit would take them to a page with a four-beat rhythm pattern on it, and we would speak it as a class while the student pointed with the pointer. We have some excellent rhythm readers in our school!
