Are there days when you just want to hit something??? In this session, you’ll have fun drumming and making music with Boomwhackers, Bucket Drums and Beat Boards. In this session, Denise takes you through a sequential process that will help your Gr. 1-5 students learn to read rhythms and melodies using Boomwhackers, Bucket Drums and Beat Boards, stick notes, tennis balls, and more!
