Use leaves to create music patterns – start by clapping:


BIG lit-tle


See how the pattern here uses one leaf for whole notes and little leaves for your quavers or half notes. This also matches the rhythm of “big little” if you aren’t familiar with those terms!


How many different patterns can children create and play? Can they make them for a partner to play?
