My 3rd - 5th grade students use interactive notebooks to log information, activities, writings, etc. My 3rd graders use this set of rhythm logs in their notebooks.
In the "another way to write it" blank, the students draw the upside down quarter note that is used in many music books.
As we learn songs, we sometimes refer to this page to figure out how to "conduct" the music. We also count barlines, measures, and point out double bar lines and repeat signs
The students are required to draw the rhythm into the "what it looks like" box as we review it.
Students refer to this page often, especially to review the real "name of the rhythm".
Note: Many educators chant the half note with "two-oo" or "too-oo". You can edit the pages if you need to in Microsoft Word.
Note: Many educators use "three-ee-ee" for the dotted half note. Again, you may edit the document in Microsoft Word.

Here are some other rhythm tools I use/have posted in the room:
|Rhythm Values Pocket Chart|
|Rhythm Values Look Book (beat values are written on the back of the tabs - students made these last year)|
|Rhythm Values Pyramid - the students create this|
