Duple Rhythm Conversations (3rd Grade)

posted Mar 23, 2016, 2:30 PM by Erika Novoselich
Recently in 3rd grade, we have been working on having rhythm "conversations" with each other. Students use their knowledge of duple meter patterns, and they take turns with a partner creating patterns back and forth. The goal is to come up with a new pattern each time. It's trickier than it seems, because they need to keep improvising new patterns on the spot, and each pattern has to be four beats long in duple meter. Check out some of our 3rd graders doing it below.
