Recently I introduced a new game to my 6-8 year old group lesson and they were so excited to share their rhythms the following week.
First we used the flash cards to lean and practice 1 beat rhythms. After they understood the concept I introduced the following game.
Musical Dice Game
You will find the resources to download at the bottom of the page.
- The game is to roll the dice and write down the note/rest that you rolled. Each side of the dice is only worth 1 beat.
- Once you have written down the 4 bars you need to clap the rhythm.
- I laminated the worksheet so that it can be reused.
Instead of using a cardboard dice, I purchased small wooden blocks (after teaching the game to the students) and I drew the notes/rests on the sides of the blocks.
