Today we will learn 2 new music vocabulary words. The first word is PRESTO which means FAST, and the second word is LARGO which means SLOW. Say the word PRESTO... Can you say it faster? Can you say it even faster? Make sure you don't get louder!
Take the next 10 seconds to say it as fast as you can but make sure you use your inside voice.
The second word is LARGO which means SLOW. Say the word LARGO... Can you say it slower? Can you say it even slower? Make sure your voice doesn't too loud again!
Take the next 30 seconds to say it as slow as you can but make sure you use your inside voice.
Now watch this video to see how PRESTO and LARGO work.

Now see if you can move like the rabbit. Make sure to stay in your own spot on the carpet.
