Valentine's Day Rhythm Activity - ta and titi
I'm already thinking about Valentine's Day activities. It is such a fun holiday and also happens to be my dad's birthday! I created this worksheet to use with Kinder and First grades. I've drawn the pictures on paper-plates (they are so handy to use). We'll decide which paper-plate is what rhythm before completing the worksheet. I do this because, although most first graders can tackle a worksheet like this easily, in Kinder, not everyone is a great reader. This way, everyone's clear on what…
Candy Hearts Activity Packet
I'm always trying to get my students to make connections. This activity will help them make connections between rhythms and lyrics, solfa (drm) and recorder pitches (g-a-b) while connecting to Valentine's Day. I created this set of three activities to integrate into our recorder unit (this is designed for my 3rd graders, although my older one will use it as a review). The first activity is called, "I Heart Music" and the students will dictate melodies using conversation hearts. I had great…

Valentine, Red and Blue
This song reminds me of my first year of teaching. I remember my mom going to Lamar Robertson's workshop in Colorado (I was teaching in Salem, OR at the time) and telling me about how great his workshop was. This was the winter before I took level I Kodály at Portland State University. I did a passing game with it in which the students passed a heart pillow that I had growing up and if they had it at the end of the song they took a card out of the inside of the pillow and read the rhythm…
Valentine's Day Games
Valentine's Day?!! What?!! I know, I know, I'm as bad as all the stores but let me explain: I have concerts coming up this springs. My third graders have a concert in February and my 2nd & 3rd graders have their concerts in April. This is in addition to my choir, drums & tone-chimes having two more concerts (one in March and one in May). Because of this I HAVE to be a planner. So, because I know that my February is going to be heavily concentrated on concert prep for third grade and…
