I tried out "Gingerbread Rhythms" with my students yesterday and they loved it! My mind was whirling about other ways to extend this activity. I'm thinking we could dictate the rhythms using popscicle sticks or even use a worksheet where the students log four favorite rhythms to share with the class (composition).
And of course, I created more variations. We now how "South Pole Rhythms" ("ice" and "penguins"), "Starry Rhythms" ("star" and "angel"), Reindeer Rhythms ("sleigh" and "reindeer"), and "Gifts of Rhythm" ("elf" and "presents").
