How to Practice Rhythm vs. Beat

It has been a great week working on the difference between rhythm and beat. Today I'm dropping in to share a quick way for your child to practice this skill.




  1. Review the rhymes we have done this week. ** Find them here and here**

  2. Print off the worksheet.

  3. With the worksheet in front of you, speak the words to each rhyme out loud.

  4. Ask your child if the pictures below the words match the rhythm or the beat. Have him circle his answer.

This worksheet is free in the Folk Songs page. Just scroll down to “Activity Sheets”.


That's it! 

It's such a simple way to practice a very important skill. Let me know how it goes! 

Have a musical day,
