Tonight, I’ll be introducing hand chimes to our 3rd and 4th graders. They have been working on their rhythm and note reading skills for the past few weeks. This evening, we take it to the next level. I’ve highlighted their notes on each music part, but I also have an unhighlighted copy on the back of each sheet. This will allow me to quickly work with both beginning music readers as well as more advanced students. If things are too simple for a given student, I’ll simply have them turn the sheet over and let them play without the guides. If time permits, we’ll change positions and play different chimes/notes.
