Bloomin' Time Signatures
This bulletin board is definitely for
spring time (or maybe just for someone who reeeeally wants it to be spring
time!). I create 5-6 flowers. Each of the flowers is made like a daisy with a
round center and then petals along the outside around it. On the center part of
the flower I write a time signature. I try to vary the time signatures using
4-4, 3-4, 6-8, 5-4, 2-2, etc... I then put up petals around the flower that
coincide with the number of beats in each measure. For example: in 4-4 time I
use 4 petals with a quarter note on each one; 6-8 time has 6 petals with an
eigth note each on them.
I usually use construction paper for
the petals, but you may want to consider using bright flourescent copy paper or
glossy wrapping paper for the petal. You can also use tissue paper wadded into
tiny balls to glue into the center part of the flower.
