One of the skills I need to teach the young ones in my care is whispering. In the excitement of play or work, voices are raised unintentionally. The din in the classroom at times becomes unbearable as many voices fight to be heard over one another.
I clap my hands. The children respond with clapping hands.
“Chuchoter les amis.”
The noise level quietens for a while and I am able to continue working with children in small groups. I know that in a while, though, another reminder will be needed.
