MUSICAL MATH: BEATS REPEAT
Professional Development for parents and teachers of 2nd-4th graders
Beats Repeat teaches students to construct beats using multiplication facts and reinforces math skills.
In this 2-hour PD you will learn how to engage your young learner to:
Use rhythm as a motivator, energizer and organizer!!!
Identify and use common sounds and techniques to create their beats. (Ex. desk top sounds, vocal percussion/ beat box sounds, and found objects)
Visually represent their sounds and rhythms with syllables
Construct a rhythm using a number bond and the musical additive rhythm technique to reduce any number into a combination of 3s, 2s, and 1s.
Organize their rhythm into columns and rows (array)
Solve, practice, and perform their multiplication sentence, demonstrating what each number in a multiplication sentence represents and how they got the musical and numerical answer.
This program is designed to make multiplication concepts stick; an embodied experience students will not easily forget!
Prior to the training you will receive the following supplemental materials in PDF format:
- Beats Repeat Guide and Instructions
- Sound chart and cards
- Multiplication sentence chart
- Beats Repeat chart paper worksheet
