The Note Knacks system for music literacy fluency includes a set of 31 blocks providing a physical representation of the five different note and rest values. Each tile is also color coded so that if you say the color, you say the rhythm! By providing children with a physical representation of the length of sound and silence in music, children are able to create an infinite number of rhythms that challenge their minds and increase their capacity to learn, building a strong musical foundation. One (1) whole note (front) - whole rest (back), Two (2) half notes (front) - half rests (back), Four (4) quarter notes (front) - quarter rests (back), Eight (8) eighth notes (front) - eighth rests (back), Sixteen (16) sixteenth notes (front) - sixteenth rests (back), Three (3) time signature frames representing 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 and 1 carrying bag
