Pizza Rondo and Rhythm War

Our third graders have been reviewing our music note values and discovering how they got their names - through fractions! They learned the Pizza Rondo and created the different layers of the pizza as they performed the song. Here is a video of one of our third grade classes performing the song:



After this lesson, I thought they would really enjoy learning how to play Rhythm War! I found this game on the "Just a Little More" music blog - she has a free download of the game. Most of the students already know how to play this card game so it is a very easy transition and a great way to reinforce note values. Let me tell you - this game is a CROWD PLEASER! The students could play this all day! :) Here are a few quick snapshots of the game:
