Today we practiced making words with /an/. Of course, no lesson in /an/ would be complete without Hammy Swinette singing that old favorite "Stand By Your Can."
We also read Decibella and Her Six Inch Voice, by Julia Cook. This was a really important book for us to listen to because we have had trouble with too many loud voices in the classroom when we are working. We learned about five different voice levels. They are: whisper, 6-inch voice, table talk, strong speaker and outside. The author uses the word "slurpadoodle" when Isabella's teacher teachers her about the six voice levels. Ask me to demonstrate the five levels and tell you when we need to use them.
