Rhythm Circle for 8ths

I have some elementary students who haven’t learned 16th notes yet, so I didn’t want to use the Rhythm Circle I posted previously. Now I can use this Rhythm Circle for 8th Notes.

Some students need to experience a new concept in different ways, and this is just one more way to explain note values. As I posted on my web site, this works best if it is a guided lesson, with the teacher explaining as the student draws. Later you can ask the student to fill it out with stems going down. Drawing stems with flags going down is usually a problem for students.
