Shout! Shout it out! by Denise Fleming (2011)

[Published by Henry Holt and Company]


Look out world, today we’re cutting loose, we’re letting it all out in an auditory explosion. Think a party of exclamation points, bemused bystanders and post-yelling hoarseness and you’re on the right track.

I’m very new at this whole teaching lark, so have no authority on the subject, but I feel it’s safe to say that some days kids are just really noisy. In spite of all the very best classroom management techniques, and most magnificent flexible pedagogy, there are times when it might be best just to admit defeat. I propose this would be the perfect time to reach into your box of voluble tricks and bring out, Shout! Shout it out!20150315_140555

It goes a little something like this, “Everybody loves to shout. So, if you know it, SHOUT it out! Ready. Set. Go!” This is followed by the numbers 1-10, the entire alphabet, a smattering of colours, a bunch of animals, and finally a succession of vehicles. Each time our deliciously diverse narrators encourage the
audience to shout out the words.

So simple, so satisfying. I dare you, give it a go.

Check out Shout! Shout it out! at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy Shout! Shout it out! from Fishpond.
