Whole class Teacher or one student is the book-reader. 10 students (one for each part of speech) each take an instrument. Introduction - The whole class listens while the book-reader reads a picture book aloud to orient the class to the story line, characters, vocabulary, etc. Performance - The reader reads the story aloud, slowly and with expression. Each word should prompt a student to play a brief sound on their percussion instrument. The remaining students can act as audience or help individually as prompters for each instrument player. Small groups The concept is the same. Each group will have a book-reader and several performers. Students can play multiple roles, eg. noun and pronoun.
