What is included in this Halloween composition activity?

  • Full color pages
  • Six spider spinners
  • Four notations sheets
  • Blank spinners that you can complete to suit your students’ current needs.
  • Plastic spinners are not included, but I use these plastic spinners and they work beautifully with card stock. Paperclips spun around a pencil tip, and fidget spinners work great too! (affiliate link)

 

Using these rhythm spinners in group piano or music class

  • Each group needs only one spinner page (plastic spinners must be purchased separately).
  • Each person in the group needs his own notation page.
  • A variety of time signatures is included, as well as a page without time signatures.
  • The students take turns spinning the spinner, then notating the rhythm onto their notation sheet.
  • After the rhythms have been notated, the students take turns performing their rhythms for their peers.
  • To sum up, students Spin, Notate, and Perform!

 

Using these rhythm spinners in private piano lessons

  • Student needs one spinner page and one notation sheet.
  • The student spins the spinner, notates the rhythm, and the performs the completed rhythm for the teacher.

 

Using the rhythm spinners as a Halloween composition activity

 

Performance tips

  • Students should be creative when performing!
  • Marching, tapping, snapping, performing in the style of the Cup Game, using Boomwhackers, classroom percussion instruments, the piano, and playing a clapping game are only a few of the many ways students can move to their newly created rhythm patterns.
  • Most importantly, have fun!
