Pass out the rhythm sticks and let the fun begin! These energetic rhythmic routines are active learning at its very best. Eighteen familiar classroom songs are presented with notated rhythm patterns and kinesthetic stick routines: tap them on your knees, click them together, cross with a neighbor, and more! The simple rhythms can be learned by rote or read off the reproducible student pages that are included on the Enhanced CD. Play-along tracks of each song are also included. Plus, concise background information makes it easy to lead a discussion about the history and culture of each piece. Recommended for grades 1--6.
