Students at my school begin playing music in kindergarten. Students start by playing simple rhythms then progress to much harder and more complex rhythms by the time they leave us in 4th grade. To make playing these rhythms more interesting, I use rhythms sticks in my class. Not only does it make playing music more fun, but it begins implementing motor skills that will carry over once students begin playing other instruments. The sticks I currently have in my room are falling a part. My school has had these rhythm sticks since before I started teaching, and they are breaking, chipping, and being thrown away due to wear and tear!
