Tonya McCord’s 3rd graders are working on a short drumming unit.

In the lesson pictured the students created word lists, prior to drumming, based on a theme (something students did or received over winter break). They then used the rhythm of the words to create repeating patterns on drums.  For example:
grandma’s house (ti ti ta)
kitten (ta ta)
hoverboard (ti ti ta)
snow (ta rest)

They also just enjoyed jamming to the grove 🙂

The 5th grade students also have new ukuleles!
