Pat the beat. Tap the beats on a beat strip as you say the poem. Clap the rhythm of the words showing the beats as you clap. You may want to do this with picture/word cards. The students could do this with heart shapes and popsicle sticks as you model it for them.

Clap the word “naughty” and ask the students how many sounds they heard. (two) Tell them that two sounds on a beat is called ti-ti and draw two lines in the hearts. (or the notes) Clap the word “kitty” and ask the students how many sounds they heard. (two) This is also a ti-ti. Clap the word “cat” and ask them how many sounds they heard. (one) Tell them that one sound on a beat is called ta and draw a line in the heart (or the note as shown). The beat with no sound is a rest.
