I just finished a new set of Thanksgiving Ostinato Cards for this upcoming holiday season.
I try to incorporate holiday pieces in my classroom, while keeping the focus on the musical skills I am working on with my classes. This activity helps to do just that.
Included in this set are 10 ostinato card sets (picture and text on one card, corresponding rhythm on another). These cards can be printed back to back to be used as flippable flash cards or they can be kept separate for matching activities.
Ideas for the card are included, such as:
*Ostinato Speech Ensembles
*Instrumental Ostinato Ensembles
*Word Chain Arrangements
These simple cards can be used in many ways and minimal preparation is needed! The included patterns use quarter notes, quarter rests, half notes, and eighth notes. Half note patterns could be removed for students who have not learned them yet!
Download this set for a quick Thanksgiving music room activity.
