Rock-a-Bye Rests

This is another easy song to help children remember the names of the most common musical rests.

Watch the video to learn the song!







Here are the words:




Rock-a-bye Rests
By Tonya Dirksen

Rock-a-bye notes
Its time to rest
We must be silent
While we take a nap

Quarter rest
Half and whole rests too

When we see one of them
Note time is through

Enjoy!

  1. Very clever! Kids tune out the word rest, I know! They ignore it so this will make them pay attention and remember.
