Second Grade Week 2 -- Rhythm vs. Beat
Today the second graders extended their understanding of the relationship between beat -- the underlying pulse in music that keeps music organized -- and rhythm -- the sequence of long and short notes and spaces in between. Using the Ta/Ta-Te wall (pictured with yours truly) and boom whackers the students learned how to read and perform different musical lines at the same time -- great fun and very noisy!
