Hi, Amanda. I just sent your message to my daughter who is a whiz at
this type of thing. her name is Hannah.... beanblossomcafe
Keep that email for future help!!
I like when kids add rhythms to songs or chants...one group does a steady
rhythm - maybe clapping, a second group add a double time rhythm maybe
snapping fingers, and a third group adds some crazy third rhythm maybe
smacking their tongues or something. it's fun to get all three groups
keeping time together. Do this with a recording or some Spanish or
Mexican music. it works with any music. Or maybe the fourth group could
sing the song and the other three groups add in the rhythm backgrounds.
It can be lots of fun, but always falls apart and makes everyone laugh.
(The groups choose their own rhythm, like clapping or snapping or banging
their heads on their desks...whatever!)
