Terri is an art teacher at an elementary school in Aurora, Colorado. Language arts classes are studying onomatopoeia. To reinforce that learning, she has students illustrate a phrase that includes an example of onomatopoeia. Because she values speaking well, she asks students to introduce their art to the class…and she teaches a little lesson about adding LIFE to the voice first. Students tend to speak in monotones but these phrases come alive with her instruction!
