In "Moral Tales," a Tapestry of Faith program
Wherever you use the children's participation suggestions, use the chime, rain stick, or other instrument to signal when the movement has gone on long enough and the children are to be still and listen again. While most children will probably understand this signal without explanation; you may like to explain it the first time you use it.
The degree of participation will vary from group to group. Younger children are more likely to fully participate. If some decide it is not "cool," then others are likely to hold back, too. It is worthwhile to try the activity, though, as it takes some children a while to warm up to physical participation and most children this age enjoy it greatly.
Before you begin, look around the room and make eye contact with each person. Then, tell the story.
Ring the chime (use other sound instrument) to indicate that the story is over.
