how to play it?
Oh, the sky is the limit!
With the tic tac toe, you could have the whole class play. – Put the class in 2 groups. If the group says the rhythm correctly (I always accept ONE person making a mistake), the group can put the X or O in that spot.– You could also put the class in groups and tell them to prepare a rhythm performance by choosing 3 beats in a row. You could force them to choose at least one box with the sixteenth notes.
With the dominoes, you could:– The class could be in two groups again. Each group takes turns rolling the dice. Whatever the number, the whole group must say that rhythm to get a point.– Also, like above, put the kids in groups in order to prepare rhythm performances. The kids must roll the dice 4 times to determine the 4 phrases their performances would contain.

Any other ideas on how to play rhythm dice?
Not really. I don’t use the dice very often. It could be adapted for a substitute, I guess, but I prefer more Orff-type lessons instead.
