Four Voices

Posted by lbbartolomeo on July 23, 2012


Here are four posters I made to represent the four voices; sing, whisper, speak, shout.

I found these pictures at google images, trying to show diversity in regards to race and gender.  I use them with kindergarten and grade 1 students.

Here’s my progression for teaching the Four Voices.  This is over about a four week period.

1.  Echo teacher.  “This is my speaking voice.” (spoken)

“This is my singing voice.”  (sung)      etc.

We continue echoing for several class periods.

2.  Teacher holds up a picture and says, “What voice is this voice?”

Students sing/whisper/shout/speak the sentence in #1.

3.  Same as #2 except Teacher hides the pictures and in the appropriate voice

sings/whispers/shouts/speaks the question “What voice is this voice?”
