To play you need the cards below and some candy for reward.
Students pick a card and perform the rhythm. For fun, I have a big, plastic cauldron for the kids to pick the cards out of. The students perform the rhythm any way you choose: counting, pointing, clapping, tapping, etc. . .
If the student picks a witch card they get a piece of candy. I have included some fun seasonal words to say the rhythms with as well.
Level One contains Quarter notes, Half notes, Dotted Half notes, Whole notes and Quarter Rests
Level Two adds in Eighth notes
NEW LEVEL THREE! adds Dotted Quarter notes
Another fun trick I like to use is getting a fake witch's finger to point to the rhythms.
