ASSIGNMENT: Students will compose their own rhythm by using quarter notes (Ta), eighth notes (Ti Ti), half notes, whole notes, quarter rests, and/or sixteenth notes. Students will write out their rhythms, color/decorate, and write their own sentence that goes along with the rhythm like Miss Holvey did above. Once finished, take a photo of the rhythm (students can be in the picture too!) and email it to Miss Holvey by April 30th. Once completed you are good to go!
