Down to a Whisper
Here To Play
Milldam Nursery School with this song.  
Mouthing the words is still a favorite and the
teachers appreciated that the children are
quiet and ready to listen to directions for the
next activity.  

We have also added movement by standing
and using our strongest singing voices.  We
then kneel and use a quieter voice.  We then
sit and whisper and finally we lie down and
mouth the words.

There was a funny class one year that liked
to click there heels while mouthing the
words.  That led into all kinds of silly and
random motions.
Hey everybody, we’ve got something to say
This is the last song we’ll be singing today
We’ll get softer and softer with each little rhyme
Til we’re down to a whisper and we’ve run out of time.

Repeat until everyone is down to whisper
then repeat by just mouthing the words with no voice

or at the end of a school or calendar year we sing:

Hey everybody there is something I fear
This is the last song we'll be singing all year
We’ll get softer and softer with each little rhyme
Til we’re down to a whisper and we’ve run out of time.
