Kindergarten Body Percussion

This week in Kindergarten music we've explored composing with body percussion.  The easiest way to do that is to make patterns using body percussion cards.  Each card has a picture of one of these movements: clap, snap, patsch or stomp.  On the back of each card is a quarter rest.  Students work in pairs to create their own compositions and then perform them.  What fun!

Teachers:  You can download the PPT with the body percussion patterns HERE.  It was created by Linda Abbott with illustrations by Laurie Zentz.

  1. My college professor gave us the Linda Abbott ppt handout, and I've been using it for years. I can't tell you how excited I am to have the original ppt to use on the SmartBoard now!!! Thank you!!!
