Your voice is an amazing tool that can help guide children’s behaviour and remember the loud voice is not always best. The tone, volume and pitch of your voice can do wonderful things, what happens if you use a soft voice?     

A loud voice?

A silly voice?

A crazy voice?

To learn how to use our voice to guide children and gain their attention, try playing Simon Says.

Playing Simon says type games allows educators to work out how to direct and give instructions to children and allows children to learn how to follow instructions from educators.

Simon says is best played with many different tones. Try it to see what works best:

“Simon says hands on knees

Simon says ahnds onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn……….. head (soft voice)

Simon says

Practice using all types of tone, volume and pitch with silly crazy voices.
