4th Grade Rhythm Lessons

Each lesson is 30 minutes long.


Lesson 1

Lesson 2

  • Opening Song
  • Hoop Rhythms– add body percussion (snap, clap, pat, stamp)
    • Play rock beat on keyboard
    • Students take turns by standing in one hoop at a time while students do the appropriate body percussion: 8 beats in each hoop. I say, “switch” at about beat 6 to help the student know when to go to a different hoop.
  • Ama Lama
    • Teacher sing each line twice, then they do 4 hoops as an interlude between lines (8 beats each) – keep changing student leaders.

    Hi. I just want to thank you for this amazing site. It is extremely helpful. I also just wanted to know how many pupils do you have in a class at a time?
