Take a few minutes with your child to stop and listen. Ask them what they hear. Does it sound like anything else they know? Have them guess what you hear. Together count how many different sounds you each hear and figure out what they are. How many can you guess?
See what your child is learning
Children learn when they use their senses. When your child listens, identifies, and counts what they hear, they’re using many of their senses, which promotes focus, memory, and making connections—skills that support reading and math in the future.
