Body Percussion with ABC Creative Music is an ideal way of dealing with the challenges of COVID
by keeping music, creativity, and fun happening - whilst focussing on the core subjects.
P1-3 Different Numbers, Call & response and the Three Times Table
P4-7 Times Tables
This activity series is great for developing rhythm skills and for consolidating times tables. We believe it is very beneficial to feel numbers in the body and use the potential and of the physical body for learning both rhythm and numbers. There is a lot of learning to do as you progress through this project - listening, moving, feeling the rhythm, performing in time, beats abd bars, then counting, and copying back. As an option it can extend to composing lyrics nd rhtyhms in groups!
It is also a great project for practicing and realising the benefit from practicing and noticing improvement as the body learns what to do,
