Details: Product Description If you are encouraging social emotional learning in your classroom, the story of Decibella will speak volumes to your students, especially those who need precise examples to follow for using appropriate behavior. Spunky, spirited Isabella is always shouting out her every though, idea, and feeling. She loves using her loud voice so much, it s even earned her the nickname Decibella! But that s not a nickname to brag about. Isabella s so loud, she interrupts class and irritates others. She doesn t know how or when to use a softer, quieter voice until her teacher introduces the five volumes of voice. Award-winning author Julia Cook s creative storytelling, coupled with eye-pleasing illustrations, help K-6 readers learn and remember what voice volume to use when speaking in class, chatting in the library, sitting at the lunch table or playing outside. Decibella and Her 6-Inch Voice is the second book in the author s popular series, Communicate with Confidence, which focuses on skills to help young children learn how to communicate appropriately. Review ...a fresh story about a young girl who needed to learn to talk softer. After several humorous episodes of inappropriately loud communications, Decibella is taken aside by her teacher. She explains that Decibella, or Isabella, her real name, has five voice volumes to choose from for effective communicating...Using the word 'slurpadoodle,' Isabella practices speaking in all five voice volumes. Most intriguing is the 6-inch voice, which means that a person more than 6 inches away, can't hear or understand what you say in that register. The teacher explains that most of the time in the classroom, Isabella should use her 6-inch voice. Isabella practices her voice volumes in all different settings, and she becomes a voice volume expert... Additional information about teaching kids proper voice volume is provided in the section titled, Tips for Parents and Educators, at the end. Humorously exaggerated illustrations of Decibella and her large mouth of teeth help express the Outside Voices or the 5th volume level. Decibella and Her 6-inch Voice is a great tool to help teach young students proper voice control in a fun, exciting story. --The Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch, July 2014 Julia Cook has done it again. In the spirit of her previous work, she has taken a social concept and defined it with a child-friendly story and engaging main character. Julia offers a non-judging and child-friendly approach to teaching the hard parts of social interaction. Decibella and Her 6-inch Voice is one of those 'must have' gems that every teacher can use over and over again. --Kari Dunn Buron, Education Specialist and Author Fun Book! This book is just so fun! I am working with a few students who struggle with understanding the difference between their indoor voice and outdoor voice. This book explains five different volumes as well as when they are appropriate. I also love that the author gives an example of a silly word to practice with. I have students use "Slurpadoodle" and practice saying it in their whisper voice, 6-inch voice, table talk voice, strong speaker voice and outside voice. --Heather, blogger @ schoolcounselingconnections.blogspot.com From the Inside Flap Isabella doesn't know how or when to use a softer, quieter voice until her teacher introduces the “five volumes” of voice: 6-inch, Whisper, Table-Talk, STRONG Speaker, and Outside.
