1. Rhythm Names: Students will say their name in rhythm while tapping rhythm on instrument.
Say: Okay, boys and girls, we are going to learn how to say our name in rhythms. I will start with mine. Mrs. Turner (bi-tim, tim-bi). When I put my hand out to you, you will echo my name, like this: Show the students. Go through the motions of what they should do: Tap rhythm, Say name. Okay! Do you remember the instructions? Say what I say: Students will say the name while tapping the rhythm. If you understand, shake your jazz hands in the air. GREAT!
Go through all of the students’ names.
