As an educator, one of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is coming up with innovative and captivating approaches to teach music that pique my students’ curiosity by using things that appeal to them. It’s always rewarding to see my students become engaged in their learning by meeting them where they are and using their interests. One of the ways I do this is by using these lego rhythm blocks!
I use these Duplo Blocks from Amazon. Using printing labels from Avery Template 8160, size 1 x 2 5/8 I put rhythms on the labels and then cut them to fit on the block. If you do not have labels, you could always just print the rhythms and glue or tape them onto the legos. The Rhythm Labels for Level One and Level Two are in my free resource library here!
I put four different time signatures on each side of some of the duplo blocks and different rhythmic values on each side of the others. I also leave some sides blank for half notes and half rests.
