After reading the book Ms Dallas took small groups on a walk around the neighborhood ” listening .” They had a visual chart with pictures so they could ” read” what they were listening for .
I thought adding bells to the paint brushes today would be a major attraction but only a few of the kids seemed interested.
We read the ” Quiet Book ” and the ” Loud Book.” After reading we made a chart listing the things we know that are quiet and the things that are loud. We also took a vote to see who preferred loud over quiet and remarkably most of the children said they preferred quiet.
We played a game . I would read the sentence and he children would touch the body part or sense they would use .
How can you tell….. a. your dinner is burning? ( nose )
Your telephone is ringing? ( ears )
Your soup needs more salt? ( tongue )
There were a couple tricky ones like ” how can you tell it is raining ?” Eyes and ears !
In honor of our hearing ( and yours ) today we made music shakers. You. Are. Welcome. 🙂
