When you’re out with your child, talk about sounds. When you hear a sound, tell them what you hear and chat about where you think it is. “I hear a bird and I think it is in that tree” Ask what they hear, and where they think the sound is coming from. Take turns being the leader.

When your child listens and names what they’re hearing, they’re paying attention and learning to connect words with sounds. This promotes language skills. By going back and forth together, you’re reinforcing their learning.
