Spooky Sounds & Stories


Zing! Zwoop! Creeaaak! How to Cast a Spell with Spooky Sounds


A thunderous thwack. Mysterious tinkling bells. There’s no better way to spark student imaginations this time of year than with creepy crawly, spook-tastic musical sounds. 

Many teachers tell us they keep these fun starters in their top drawer or back pocket. A favorite of students, these instruments help boost creativity, problem-solving, abstract thinking skills and more. They’re especially effective in eliminating student distraction when teaching online lessons. 

Try using sound to spring a supernatural surprise whenever classroom energy drops. Add nail-biting suspense to any lesson, song or story. Use them as a reward – everyone wants a turn on the Thunder Tube and the clippity-cloppity Sand Blocks! You’ll find a zillion ways to use these musical sound effects all year long. Just don’t be surprised when the ruckus draws a few curious visitors to your classroom. No one can resist ‘em!
