Chrome Music Lab - Rhythm in Google Classroom

Chrome Music Lab - Rhythm

This one is going to be fun. All you need to do is play around with this and make some rhythms. It basically has two sets of instruments depending on which you choose with the arrow. Then on the bottom it's basically a measure of 3/4, 4/4, 5/4 or 6/4 split into eighth notes. So 1 & 2 & 3 & etc. Each line is either a downbeat or upbeat. You click the dot you want, on the beat you want and have fun.

Once you've messed around for awhile, click the form, click "Yes, on pain of dismemberment, I completed this assignment". Then submit it.

Getting to Know You in Google Classroom

Getting to Know You

Hello,

Sorry I'm out sick, I'd much rather be with you all.

Anyway, I think it's very important to get know your students. It helps to build trust and respect, and Mr Carlson is all about those things. So, I've got a rather simple task for you to complete while I am horrible injured in bed today. All you need to do is:

1. Open the Getting to Know You google doc (it makes you your very own copy and everything),
2. Fill it out
3. Submit it
4. Profit

Done. No big deal. Give me some stuff to read. For all those that are wondering, yes, it is for points. How else am I supposed to motivate you to fill out Mr Carlson's survey?

Oh, and be nice to your sub/s, I'll be back on Thursday.
