There is a reason that Mr. Rogers was a constant favorite with young children and why they could tell you what he said that day. It’s all in the voice, his rate of speech more specifically.   Studies show that children’s brains retain more when  a slower rate of speech is used.  When they say slower rate they are talking less than 200 words per minute.


I got to thinking about how  fast a teacher’s typical rate of speech is, and sometimes how fast mine is for that matter.   I need to make sure I am using a slower rate of speech during my sessions as I tend to talk kinda fast.  After all what is more important, saying everything I want to in a session or making sure my students understand everything I say.  I am going to put it on my to do list ( that always seems to be growing ) to mention to my students’ teacher to try and be aware of their rate of speech as well.
