The weather is finally turning cooler, which means it’s time to start posting my autumn material. So today’s Throwback Thursday is Pumpkin Music Math, a set of two rhythm worksheets that you’ve seen before. I can’t resist posting it again because there is something brand new here! I’ve made a new version in black and white for teachers who don’t have color printers or who just want to save some money on ink!
The two versions in the file include an easy and a harder worksheet. The easy version is for first year students who have learned whole, half, dotted half, and quarter notes. The harder version is for students who are learning eighth notes and dotted quarter notes.
Here are the instructions for the worksheet. There is a quarter note in the middle of the pumpkin. For each example, they count the quarter note in the middle first. Then they add it to the rhythm patterns in each group. At this point they should have a whole number such as 2, 3, or 4. Then they convert that into a note such as a half note, dotted half note, or whole note. They draw the note in the blank. Younger students may need a scratch sheet to add the notes.
I hope someone can get some use out of a black and white version!
If you want to check out the color version, here’s the link for that. Remember, you can always print one copy and keep it in a sheet protector to use with wet or dry erase pens.
