Wow! Isn't that steady beat amazing! Steady beats are everywhere! Download the activity Kangaroo song below and see if you can hop to the steady beat too!
FOCUS AND APPLY
Wasn't that fun! Now let's listen carefully and analyze the music! Let's listen and freeze on the talking parts and hop and jump with the "Boing" steady beat part of the music
Awesome! Now download our steady beat chart. Point and count how many times we do each group with the music! Here's a hint: Start at the top of the page "Keep the Beat"- and make sure to count with each section the music. How many fast groups of 8 did we do? How many slow groups of 2 did we do? How many middle groups of 4 did we do?
Different levels of steady beats are happening all the time in music. For fun, use your Kangaroo finger puppet to create you own order of the different levels of steady beat with the full length version of the kangaroo song. You can also find the steady beat in any of your favorite songs!
