LEGO Rhythms

 

Rhythm Lego Gallery

Download this gallery of Lego blocks with rhythms that correspond to the Lego length to be used for rhythm writing/reading! Also included are Lego time signatures and rhythmic pattern templates in 4/5, 3/4 and 2/4. Click here to download. 



Lego Rhythm Builders

Use these Smartboard files to compose rhythm patterns with students using Lego blocks! The number of beats each block is worth corresponds with the length of the lego block. For example, a quarter note uses a "one-lump" block, while a half note uses a "two-lump" block, and so on. Templates are made in 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4. Down load the Rhythm Lego Gallery to make your own templates and worksheets too!

  1. That's really cool, thank you! Any chance of some blocks with dotted crotchets (dotted quarter-notes)?

I wanted to share with your that a coworker and I are presenting at our state conference and we would like to add your blog information as well as a photo of one of your Lego worksheets to share with illinois music teachers. My coworker loves the Legos activities you have created and we want to share them! Thanks for all of your great stuff!

  3. I think this is the greatest idea! However, the lego gallery file has been removed from the website. Any idea why/any way it could be reuploaded or sent directly to me? Thanks so much!

  5. I can't wait to do this. I am so excited. I hate I'm getting all of these great ideas in my last year of teaching music.
