This week, we focused on what we hear every day! Students thought about the sounds they listen to at home, at school, and outside.
Lesson Note: By focusing all o our attention on only one of our senses, we realized how much we hear every day and how much learning about sounds can tell about a person.

The Sounds I Hear at School
by Tamia D.
I hear the boy behind me
smacking on M&M’s. I hear
the water fountain going

their pencils going tap tap
tap. I hear people talking
going pssss psssss. I hear
people clicking their keyboard
going click click click.
My Favorite Sounds
by Niko R.
I hear the swish of the basketball hitting the net
I hear the crack of a baseball bat hitting a home run
I hear the klunk of a baseball mitt catching a fastball
I hear the pitter patter of the rain falling from the sky
I hear the bounce of a basketball being dribbled
I hear the shhhh of the wind wooshing
I hear the flow of the river
These are my favorite sounds

I love hearing the rain. It is so relaxing
Hearing the wind just makes me happy
When I’m stressed out the relaxing music is all I need
The sound of the rain is relaxing
When I’m mad I hear relaxing music
Hearing the sounds of birds singing makes my day better
The leaves falling sound is relaxing
Hearing my family laugh just makes me happy
Hearing my friends makes me happy
by Jacqueline G.
I hear the microwave humming
I hear the cabinet door slamming
I hear my dog go bark, bark
I hear the soup go bubble, bubble
I hear the whispers in my ear
I hear the stove go tic, tic
I hear my sister screaming
at the top of her lungs
I hear my shoes go tap, tap
I hear the talking fade away
I hear the alarm clock go ding, ding
