Last month, the 2nd graders worked with rhythmic dictation (listen then write what you hear). Each student had a partner and a page to work with while we listened. We listened to the 4 beat rhythm twice before trying to write it down. It was tough to work together, but everyone worked out a system to complete their work quickly and easily.
Working together to get the job done!
Waiting for others so we can share!
When students completed their listening, one of the teams was invited up to the SMART board to present their work to the class. The fun part of this listening exercise was tapping the black rectangle on the SMART board, which revealed if the team had listened really well!
