    Beethoven's 5th on Boomwhackers-I love using these during lessons for a game, now it would be neat for kids to watch this video too

    OK Go is amazing! Rhythmic visualizations throughout the entire video. I'll be using this soon with 3rd grade to kinetically show note values. Maybe use a scarf to imitate some of the motions. UPDATE: used this and the treadmill video as described above with 3rd-5th. We watched this one first, looking for slow and fast movements and how it fit with the beat. Then learned movements, then watched treadmill vid. They were calling out "that's a whole (or quarter, half, etc.) note" while watching! :)

    Definitely going to do this with the kinders.
