Elementary Music Holiday Rhythm Activities

Looking for some ways to keep engagement high in your December music classes? Holiday Rhythm Drag & Drop Activities are the way to go!

Whether teaching virtual classes, or in person, using interactive google slides activities will help you keep on teaching rhythms, provide students practice activities, and enable different ways to assess students.


Students are saying and play the rhythms-

Clapping and chanting-

Counting and Tapping-

That’s why my students are loving these types of activities. It’s easy to keep students focused using the presentation practice pages.

I can share the screen with my online students and together we can do the drag and drop activities.

I always have my students SAY AND PLAY the sounds and rhythms.

It’s hard for many of them- and I’m sure it feels weird doing it in their living rooms!

But- it’s a very effective activity.


I love watching the kids play their home made instruments.

They love to play their own rhythm patterns. Many of them will sing the patterns too.

Here’s some pictures to help you see what’s included in this resource.

Rhythm activities are perfect for elementary music class activities. Students love using body percussion, instruments and creating their own patterns.

Using thematic activities helps students relate to the materials, stay engaged and get “excited” about the activities.
