Writing rhythms with felt sticks

We played halloween games today, learned beginning square dancing and started the process of identifying and understanding the beat verses the rhythm in music.
|We pat the beat on our lap as we sing (the drum drawing) and clap the rhythm as we sing (the mouth - which equals "clap the way the words go"). I hope my "mouth" drawing doesn't look like a banana as I was drawing a mouth - haha.|
|I made pumpkin rings for all the children in the Music Club. We played a pumpkin game that ends with making a pumpkin face - something silly. The level of creativity is priceless. See pictures below:|

We are learning to read and write music, sing in-tune, be creative, keep the beat, create rhythms that enhance the songs we sing. Most of all we are having a lot of fun extending our musical experience.
|Sometimes the horse runs fast.|
|Four horses and one farmer!!! So fun|
|Here Jorge points to the notes on the staff while Liam uses the Kodály hand signs for so mi - notice Liam is reading the notes from the staff as he sings.|
|Here students are developing improvisational skills on the conga drums that match the song we are singing.|
|This game is sooooooo funny - laughter is fantastic!!|
