Here we are discussing about some of the activities to improve the listening skill of the children.
- Who made that sound? We need few noisemakers (a drum, a shaker, a flute, a whistle, a rattle, and a xylophone) Ask children to close their eyes or turn their bodies away so that they are not looking. Choose a sound maker and ask a child to find the object that made the same noise.
- We need a puzzle with a 5-6 piece. Put the puzzle board in a specified location. Ask the children to pick up one puzzle piece. When the adult names the piece the child has to put the piece on the board.
- Make sounds of farm animals/ instruments, transport human sounds through songs and rhyme, using puppets and props- Teddy bears Teddy bear turn around, walking through the jungle, Old Mac Donald had a farm, I am the music man, Drive a motor car… and human sound cough, sneeze, hiccups, laugh, cry, whistle to the tune of finding a peanut.
