Valentine Rhythm Activity
Valentine messages are used to explore rhythm patterns and create original chants and rhythm compositions. Students will combine their musical skills with fun heart visuals and some Valentine spirit and will be having so much fun, no one will believe they are actually working and learning things!
Create Valentine Messages
... and then mix and remix to create endless combinations of original chants and rhythmic compositions. Will the phrases the students create make a chant that makes sense? Will the combinations turn into some very strange “lyrics” for their song? Students are keen to read the chants and rhythmic compositions THEY have created and will be engaged and interested in repeating the activity in multiple combinations.
In addition to applying their music skills, students are empowered with the knowledge that when they organize sounds, they are actually composers!Enjoy creating, having fun and experiencing the wonderful world of music through play and exploration.
