Resource Round-Up

DSMusic Rhythm Bingo

Looking for some ready-made Rhythm Bingo sheets? Deb’s got it sorted for you.

This free resource is part of the Level 2 DSMusic curriculum and focuses on basic rhythmic values – it’s a great way to get your students clapping back and recognising rhythms.

You’ll find the instructions as well as the rhythm bingo cards themselves – though Deb recommends laminating these after you’ve printed them off. There are also some handy suggestions for other variations of bingo with a music theme.

Anyone got Bingo? Be sure to call out when you do!

Level 1: Lara’s Train

Using only the notes of the pentatonic scale and simple 2/4 time, this Deb Smith original composition chugs along on the track and is a great one to use when teaching and practicing semiquavers.

Level 3 Video: Transposition

Here, Deb takes students through the basics of transposition, giving them a solid theoretical foundation in this concept.

Students are introduced to transposition using interval patterns with C, G and F Major Scales.

Level 1: Research Assignment

This Research Assignment can be set at any time for Level 1 students. While they’re busy digging into the details of a famous composer, you’re helping them build important investigative, interpretive and music history skills.

This assignment includes everything you need – task, questions, format and a rubric.
