Mice are small, but snails are even smaller, while giraffes are considered to be tall. In the alphabet, some lowercase letters are small and others are tall. As children start to learn about the size and shape of objects they will begin to improve their spatial skills, but they need to understand how to use all of those words correctly. They should use tall and short to talk about height (vertical distance) especially with people, but these words can also be used for buildings and trees. They can use long and short to talk about the length or horizontal distance between things. Long and short can also be used with time, books, words, sentences, animals, hair, legs, and many other things. The short blonde has extremely long legs. This is entirely a matter of opinion, but many say that a man who is less than 5’8” or 173cm in height is thought to be short and one that is over 6’ or 182cm is said to be tall.
Last week we had Inside Our Heads, and everyone was supposed to choose a song that contained one these prompts Brain/Mind/Think in either the title or the lyrics. This week we have length and size prompts of Long/Short/Small/Tall and the song that you choose must contain one of these prompt words in either the title or the lyrics. Take some time to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this music challenge, and even better, read as many of them as you are able to as you will probably find many enjoyable songs and it is quite possibly that you will learn a thing or two. Share your music with others and post a video, try do some research and let everyone know something about the song that you post. Tell everyone why you like the song, whether it was a hit, or what you think the song is about. Show the lyrics, let’s all listen to our favorite songs and explore some new music. Try to find a song that fits the prompt, then write your post and create a pingback, or you can just place your link in the comments section.
Here are the “rules”:
• Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it contains the prompt words or not. If it does not meet the criteria, then please explain why you chose this song.
• Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be.
• Make sure you also credit the singer/band and if you desire you can provide a link to where you found the lyrics.
• Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song.
• Ping back to this post or place your link in the comments section below.
• Read at least one other person’s blog, so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process.
• Feel free to suggest future prompts.
• Have fun and enjoy the music.
