Working With Sounds

Working With Sounds

Help younger children notice, repeat & manipulate sounds in their environment. Sounds can include silverware on the counter, clap, bang, bells, whoosh – whatever you notice.

  • The sound of your phone
  • Car honking
  • The sound when the A/C comes on
  • Water going down the drain
  • Sirens
  • The different sound of a footstep on gravel or grass or wood?
  • Toast popping when it is done.
  • Encourage them to notice sounds you haven’t yet explored.

Can you repeat it?

Can you make it louder and softer?

Faster and slower?
