For Interactive Listening and Reading Fun
by Cristi Cary Miller.

Reinforce reading, listening and music skills through these 18 reproducible "sound stories". Special words in each story are attached to sounds and patterns that can be played on a variety of found sound and classroom instruments, either as suggested or what is available.

Gr. 2-5 listen and respond with their pattern either before or after the word is said, or in place of it. Eventually, one of them could read the story, pausing at the appropriate moments--a challenge in itself!

This collection includes American & other cultural folktales, seasonal stories, as well as original ones. Teaching suggestions and National Standards guides are included.

Match this with our Music in Commotion Kit (99003) of special effects instruments, dramatize the story and put on a performance!
