Scarey Rhythms

This week students are matchiing scarey halloween lyrics to rhythmic patterns. This ear-training exercise accomplishes two musical skills; understanding quarter, dotted quarter, and eighth note patterns, and using the ear to match words and syllables to each rhythmic pattern. Let’s see how everyone does!

I don’t know who wrote the lyrics, but Jennifer Fink at Pianimation.com created the rhythm cards. Here is the link:
