Kindergarten Taps out a Pattern


Ms. Maggie’s kindergarten students have been tapping out patterns with their rhythm sticks.
In this kindergarten music unit, language and rhythm concepts were combined to give students
verbal, tactile, and kinesthetic experiences. Through participation, students became familiar with some
basic elements of music and could recognize a steady beat and simple rhythm. Students performed simple rhythm patterns for our Friday Town Meeting.
