Read the rhythm of the song. To help reinforce the concept that the rhythm of the song is “the way the words go,” divide the class into two groups and have half the students read the rhythm using your preferred rhythm names and the other half read the words. To reinforce the difference between beat and rhythm, you could have half the class pat the beat and the other half clap the words in rhythm.
