Songs & Rhymes:

Loud & Quiet
Quietly, quietly not a sound
I’m listening and I’m listening
As I look around
No sounds as I nod (nod)
No sounds as I clap (clap)
No sounds as I tap my hands on my lap (tap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
Loudly, loudly, stamp and clap (stamp and clap)
All that noise, well fancy that!

Two Little Blackbirds
Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud,
one named quiet and one named LOUD!
Fly away, quiet! Fly away, LOUD!
Come back, quiet! Come back, LOUD!

Clap, Clap Your Hands
Clap, clap, clap your hands, Clap them all around
Clap them loud  And clap them soft
Now don’t make a sound

Slap your knees…
Stomp your feet…

Bread & Butter
Bread and butter
Marmalade and Jam
Let’s say hello as quiet as we can
(whisper: hello)

…loud as we can
…slow as we can
…fast as we can
…high as we can
…low as we can
…nice as we can

    I did quiet for q, too. I really like the idea of children’s stories/etc. encouraging quiet. And I do like the idea of childrens’ stuff as a theme, too.

      I usually do a quiet theme as an opposite theme to encourage the children to understand the difference between being loud and quiet!

    Hello from A to Z, Laura. There is a book I like by Deborah Underwood called The Quiet Book.

      I know that book! There are so many books out there, I knew I’d forget some! That’s a perfect book for this storytime theme!

    That is a set of really cool rhymes. You are putting together a great resource for parents/families through this challenge, kudos.
