What the heck is a 6" voice? Does it just mean to talk softly? Do kids get this?
I use 1 inch voices. Yes, they get it- take out the rulers- have the kids 'pinch an inch' on the ruler (showing 1 inch between pointer and thumb) then tell them to hold up to their lips. talk about what a one inch voice would sound like...
I would think it means a voice that only someone 6 inches away could hear
Yeah, I'd show them how small 6 inches is...and practice using whispers, quiet voices, and normal talking...
Never heard of this, but like it!
Yes, I use six inch voices to mean that someone six inches away should hear you (usually when talking to partners or table mates). To explain you can get the ruler out and have them practice using a voice that can only be heard six inches away.
