This chant is a super easy way to remember and learn the name and beat of a half note.

Easy Half Note Chant

Half note, two
Half note, two
Half note, two!
Carolyn, at Wise Owl Factory, has a fun Free Do You Know Your Music Notes Power Point. This is a great way to practice the names and beats of the notes as well as seeing how all the notes compare with one another.
Musical Twister Hopscotch is another fun way to reinforce note names and beats. My students love playing it whenever we get a chance. They spin and have to tell the name and beat of the note the spinner lands on. Then they get to hop to the correct colored circle.

We put the notes up on a bulletin board in the kitchen and my girls enjoy saying the chants. What a creative way to learn music theory!ReplyDelete
That's great! Thanks Andrea!Delete
I'm about to start teaching music for the first time and was a little stumped about how to relay what beats were to people who had no idea. This helped me a lot! Thanks!ReplyDelete
