The phrase “in like a lion, out like a lamb” is often used to describe the month of March, since when it begins, it is still winter, and when it ends, it is spring. In this song, we will practice playing loudly like winter or a lion’s “roar”, and softly like spring or a lambs “baa”.
“In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb” provides opportunities to address these objectives:
- Improve auditory discrimination skills
- Improve listening skills
- Increase understanding of seasonal transitions
Brainstorm other animals that could reflect the loud start and soft ending of March. Substitute with those sound effects and lyrics when singing the song. Have fun celebrating the transition into spring!
