Rhythm Basketball - Nutcracker - Grade Lesson Plan - This looks so much fun! I am going to have my kids play the rhythms with basketballs and instruments. AND it comes with lesson plans!

During my nutcracker unit, my students loved creating their own nutcracker rhythms. Loved that there were two levels of difficulty so I could use for more than one grade. I had them record with the iPad video app and email me saying their rhythms. It allowed me to assess students on rhythm reading.
