Visualization of Rhythms in 4/4

Counting the beats in a measure can be a kinesthetic process. Four chairs are placed in a row, each one represents a beat or count in 4/4 time. Kids sit in the chairs and act as quarter notes. When a child is removed, the rhythm changes showing that each empty chair represents a quarter rest. Neat idea!

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
