  • Steady beat/Tempo: During your dance moves from your PE assignment, (or any song that you like listening to) think about the steady beat. (The steady beat is like the heartbeat of the music - it doesn’t usually change within a song.)  Is the steady beat (or tempo) slow, medium, or fast?  


  • Rhythms & Movement: Now think about the rhythms that you are moving to for your PE assignment (or other song that you like listening to).  (The rhythm is the different duration of each sound, some sounds last for a whole beat or longer, sometimes there are two, three, or four sounds to a beat.  We have worked a lot with one sound to a beat - quarter notes (♩) and two sounds to a beat - eighth notes ( ♫ )). When did your feet make more than one move to a beat? 



K-2 Technology: Type a sentence that describes the movements you used for the PE assignment OR art assignment OR music rhythm assignment.  Keep a journal and write in it to help you remember. Use Google Docs to type your sentence that describes the movements that you observed.
