Best Answer:This activity is more of an assessment tool for children who have been learning what quarter notes, half notes, dotted quarter notes, quarter rests, and pairs of eighth notes are.
I have been in and participated in leading childrens music at church and I would not use this as a game. If you are just wanting to teach the children to have good internal rhythm/beat then sticking to singing songs that involve body movement would be more helpful.
Hi Carroll. As a music teacher, I love the Rhythm Bingo. It is a good way for me a assess my first grade students on their knowledge of rhythms. I am not familiar with your situation and cannot speak directly to it but I plan on using this product. I have only used level 1, level A. (there are 2 sides to each playing card--level A and level B).
If you can read and perform rhythms, you should have no trouble with rhythm bingo. I am a music teacher and use it with my 4th, 5th and 6th grade music classes. Since there is no CD that performs the rhythm for you, you must be able to read the rhythms! Hope this helps!
Yes, this is a very easy but really really fun activity. I used it for 2nd-8th grade, they all loved it. It's best to use "Ta" for quarter notes "Ti-Ti" for eighth notes, "Ta-a" for half notes, and "Rest" for quarter rests. I think this is the Kodaly method of counting.
