2 Tap the beats on the beat strip at the end of "Time for Music"

Tap the beats on the beat strip at the end of "Time for Music".

If your students can find a small toy, they could tap the toy on each beat.
When Artie Almeida has students use a toy or stuffed animal to keep the beat, she calls it a "beat buddy".
It's a fun manipulative for kids to use in keeping a beat.
