In thinking about my first lesson for Kinders and First, I wanted to include my very favorite story that I tell to illustrate the four major voices ~ talking, whispering, shouting and singing. Some of you may remember this from a previous post, but for all of the new folks that have recently joined our community (WELCOME!!), I wanted to share it again……and hopefully it will be a refresher for everyone else!

I learned this story in an Orff class years ago in Boston. I loved it immediately! It is funny and the kids get a big kick out of it! …..and I have a blast telling it!

I usually tell it on the first class and have added a follow up lesson or two, but that will have to wait until next week! Until then, click HERE!
