Rhythm Instrument Fun - Download

A collection of activities to get preschool - Grade 5 children playing, listening, creating and reading music using non-pitched percussion instruments.

Songs are included to teach instrument rules and classroom management when playing instruments.

Younger students will love the simple play alongs, and older students will enjoy relative note value activities with instruments (or tennis balls) and stick rhythms. Suggestions and reproducibles are included for assessment activities, and the recording (included) has both performance and accompaniment tracks.  Written by Denise Gagne
