Beginning Rhythm E-Product Review and Giveaway (ends 10/8) WW (Closed)

As a former music teacher (and sometimes a music substitute), I am always on the hunt for innovative ways to teach music in the classroom and in the home.  I was so excited to be chosen to review this beginning rhythm e-product.  I have always been a big proponent of games in the music classroom, and I can remember the days I had to sit down and create all these manipulatives for the games by hand.  And I can remember that sometimes the music symbols did not look all that great.  The students would comment that what they saw in the book did not look the same as my hand-drawn symbols.  I tried to explain to them that I couldn't always draw the symbols as same as the book.  The books used machines and computers to create the symbols so they looked better than my hand-drawn symbols.  I got so tired of telling the students that!  And I got so tired of drawing the symbols on 4 x 6 index cards that often got lost and ruined.  And then I would have to draw them again!

Oh, I wish I had had these when I was teaching, but I certainly will when I teach again!  I can remember not playing rhythm bingo because I didn't want to make that many cards for the students.  And of course, here they are all made up!  I can remember having to make all sorts of duplicates for various games.  The quality of these cards are fantastic, and if I ever lose the printables, my computer will always have a backup!  I wish I were teaching music right now so I could get in and use them, but I know my daughter will love these.  In fact, I need to recommend them to the music teachers I know.  They are worth any expense--they are so simple and easy to use.

I am so pleased to be able to tell you that two of my readers are going to win their very own e-copy of these beginning rhythm manipulatives!  And since it is an e-copy, it is open worldwide!  All you need to do is enter using the rafflecopter form below.  The giveaway will end October 8 at 9:00 P.M.
