Skill Focus: Creative Expression, Follow Directions, Speaking and Listening

Have children draw pictures of the things that make their favorite sounds.

Encourage children to draw the setting where they might hear the sound. Ask them how the sound makes them feel.

Then have children dictate or write to fill in the sentence at the bottom of their drawing:

The <bird’s> sound is <quiet>. It makes me feel <happy>.
