Are you looking for a fun holiday way to practice rhythms with your kids that will keep their interest as the holiday vacation draws near?
Fear not – give them the gift of an ugly Christmas sweater.
This works great for an assessment – formative or summative. But if you aren’t careful, you might get stuck with the ugly sweater! If they read the rhythm right (in regular notation), a present (a point!) for their team.

This is a GREAT game if you have an Interactive Whiteboard. Just throw something soft at the board (like a koosh, or soft squishy ball, and the rhythm they hit is theirs to read.
If you don’t have an interactive whiteboard (like me!), it still works!!. Just use a mouse to click the sweater you want to choose (you or a student helper can do this). Project on the wall, or run through the computer system in a way that you students can see it. I use my computer to project through a TV.
