Notice there is no holiday theme to this handout, Rhythm in the Grid with Eighth Notes? That’s because I thought I posted it back in the summer. I can only find the one I made with 16th notes so I’m posting this now. Maybe if you have a student who has trouble understanding dotted quarters, this graphic will help. Sometimes you have to try different ways to explain things because everyone learns differently. [Edited: This file now includes two pages, both the 8th note and the 16th note visual.]
There have been many helpful hints posted in the comments section. For cutting the Rhythm Pizza on foam board, kitchen shears has been suggested. Another teacher saves on printing by putting worksheets in a clear sheet protector and using a dry erase marker. It can be erased and used over and over. Thanks for the great ideas.
