Loud Like a Lion Activity

 
My kids thought it was so fun being as loud as they possibly could be. They also giggled when we would quickly switch back and forth. At the beginning of the activity I had to keep reminding them to pay attention so they wouldn’t miss me changing the lions. By the end of the activity, they where attentive and watching every movement to make sure they didn’t miss the switch. It was fun times for us all!

Objectives: Learning about vocal volume, Practice following directions, Paying attention to a leader, Practice being a leader

Age Group: Preschool/ Tot School

Supplies:
Popsickle Sticks
Tape or Glue
Music instruments (optional)

Directions:
To prep the activity: cut out the two lines from the printable and tape or glue each one to a popsickle stick. Ask kids to point out which lion looks like they are being loud, and which lion looks like it is being quiet. Discuss times when we are supposed to be quiet (library, movie theater, church, doctors office…) and times when it’s okay to be loud (at a party, park, if yelling for help…)

To play the activity: Hold one of the lions up at a time and have the children either be loud or quiet according to which lion you are holding up. Kids can use their voices, stomp feet or clap hands, or play instruments. Each child can have a turn being the leader and holding up the lion faces to the group.

  1. Thank you so much for making this available, and for free!

  2. When I tried to open the L sight word printable, it immediately opened up dropbox and said the file was deleted or moved. Any ideas on how I can download that to print it off? Thanks!

    1. I Colleen, I am sorry about that. I just updated the link and appears to be working now. Please let me know if it is still having issues and I can send it to you by e-mail. ๐Ÿ™‚
