Now when my two boys and girls to listen I love your songs when he brings you another let's find out. How boys and girls. Are you ready to listen for sounds today. Many things make sense but are all sound alike. Can you tell what makes a sound when you listen to it. Well we'll have to try and see. There are many sounds for us to hear almost any time if we'll just listen. Some sounds are easy to hear and they're easy to tell too. We can't tell just what is making that sound when we hear it but some sounds are not too easy. Sometimes it's hard for us to tell what is making a certain sound.
If you couldn't see a dog would you know one was around if you heard EMR. I'll bet you would. Do all dogs barks. Sound the same. Do all dogs bark the same. Have you got a dog. Does he always bark the same. Does his bark sound like the dog that lives down the street. Well maybe he does. Do automobile horns sound just alike. If you close your eyes could you tell who was talking in your room. Sometimes we know what is making you know always even though we never see it. The bell that rings in your schoolroom clock can you see the bell. But you know what it is you can hear it when it rings and you know where it is don't you.
Would you like to hear some sounds and see if you know what makes the sound. Are you all ready to listen good. See if you can guess what it is that is making the sound after you hear it now. A good way to listen for sounds is to close your eyes. Are your eyes closed. It's more fun to do it this way if you close your eyes listen. Oh. I know what was meant. Could you tell a little bit about that animal. Do you think he was a big one or a small one. Listen again. Iraq. Was that the same dog you heard before. Do you think it was. Could you tell what kind of a dog
made that bark. Was that second bark. Different from the first one you heard. Did one sound happy. How about that second one. How did it sound. Do you want to hear those songs again. Let's have the first dog bark again. I'm Farai. Do you think he was happy. I think so do. Now how about the second one. I. Know what was the matter with him. Well maybe we won't know but he didn't sound like the first one did it. All right fine now. Can you tell us things about people when you hear their voices. I mean can you tell whether they're happy or sad or cross or some feeling some other way.
I think you can. Would you like to try. When I listen I'm going to make a few sounds with my voice and I'm not going to say any word at all. I'm just going to make a sound and you see if you think they're different. Will you listen. They're going to be four of them. Now listen. Did you hear four different sounds was one a happy one. Did one sound cross. Was one or some surprised sound. How about the last one. You did ask a question. Do you think you might try that game some time without saying any word really
but making some sounds that tell people how you feel and you could guess about them. Now listen again. This time I'm going to ring some gongs for you. Listen very carefully and see if you can find different sounds Now listen. Were they all alike. Was one louder than the other. Was one lower than the other. All right let's hear them again. What happened that time. Two of them sounded at the same time didn't they. Oh all right. Now we're going to make some more sound for you and maybe you'd like to guess what they are or what it is that's making the sound. Are you ready. Now
here's the first one. Listen carefully. What was that. Did you guess a drum. Did it make you want to walk and march around. Yes it did. All right. Now we're going to listen to another one another sound and I wonder if you've ever heard this sound before. Did you. Have you ever heard that sound before. What was it. Do you have any at your house. I don't think so. You'd have to go way out in the country to hear that wouldn't you. Yes you would. Now maybe some of you
some of you might have something that is going to make the next sound. I wonder if you have something that would make this next sound at your house. Listen. What were those. Was there more than one. Could you hear more than one. I think you could there may have been three or four or five or six. It was a little hard to tell how many was in it but it there were more than one. Now let's listen to another one now. This one's going to be just a little bit like the others but see if you could tell the difference. What was that. It was an animal too wasn't it
was an animal larger or smaller than the first one you heard. I think you could tell couldn't you. The first one sounded like very young animals and I'm not going to say what they are because I'm hear you. Yes. And the last one was an older animal. Now let's listen again and this time see if you can guess what is happening when you hear sounds like this. You're ready. All right let's go. You hear something going on. Listen Again listen carefully.
Oh I wonder. We're going to have to turn on the. Way. Did you hear that. Have you ever heard a sound like that before. All right. Good. You knew what it was then and you wouldn't have to see anything to know what had made that sound would you. All right. Now I'm sure that most of you have heard the next sound we're going to make for you. You will have to be someplace special in order to hear this sound. And I'll bet most of you have been in that place. Are you ready to listen. Go ahead. Where were you. Did you go for a long. Haul ride I'm Hewer you have heard a sound like that before and
climbed up into a great big bus and off it went. So you see you can tell what is making you sound even though you can't see it. Isn't that true. All right now we've got one more for you to listen to and see if you've ever been anywhere where you've heard this. The earlier one with. The young. Well where were you. Not very far away from where you are right this minute were you. No you've heard that sound off and I'm pretty sure. I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea after the program is over for you to try to play a few sound or listening again. You think you could make up some.
I think you could. I think you could make up some very fine listening games you could choose. Or rather you could all close your eyes and the teacher could tap someone on the head and that someone could make a noise are say something and then you could all guess who it was. Oh you could think of doing a lot of things. And here's something I'd like you to do for me. Would you do it. Close your eyes again close and tight and listen. Some day when you have time to spare. Sit still some place upon a chair. Be cool. Why it. As ever you can and try to hear all this that you buy. You may hear a bird in a tree outside or you may hear a car on the street so wide you may hear this soft little squeak of a mouse or it may be just an old bird in the house.
You may hear a dog bark outside somewhere that sounds far away as it comes through the air. Oh there are ever so many sounds you can hear if you just stop talking and use your ear when you talk. Try it some time before too long and write us a letter and send it along and tell us what sounds you heard and if they were a street car or a raindrop or a bird. When you do that. Alright bye.
