Introduce this chant to children to teach the difference between “loud” and “soft.” Have the children count from one to four, pausing after each number. When they pause, you say the second part of each line of the chant. As they get to the higher numbers, they should get louder.
One – you said that softly...
Two – a little bit louder...
Three – I still can't hear you...
Four – That's so loud!
This could be done in large group.
