Music Lessons for the Young Child: RHYTHM LESSON 4 Adding Rests to our Rhythms

The next step to our rhythm lessons is to add rests to the icons we know how to read. We are only going to use quarter note rests that get one beat. They will be named "rest" for the purpose of reading and clapping the rhythm. Instead of clapping on the rest we will take our hands and give a beat into the air. We do want the children to feel that beat and not to do nothing on the rest. Even a rest gets a beat! For example, if we were reading and clapping Ta Ta Ti-Ti Rest it would look like…

Music Lessons for the Young Child: RHYTHM LESSON 9 - Notation with rests

It is now time to add rests to our music. This is basically the same lesson as lesson 8 but it includes the quarter rests.

MelodySoup blog: Music Lesson Plan Template...this is the best music specific layout I've seen in a long time.

For the first 10 years or so of teaching music I was free to use any lesson plan template that I chose. I'll admit that mostly I just made my music plans fit on whatever was available. Then around the time that I really started thinking about what would be most useful for me and really playing with templates, my school district handed down a required online template. I used dutifully used that template with as much success as could be expected and had actually made plans on asking for a…
