Sound Pattern Play

Toddler Pre-Schooler On the Go

Take turns with your child making sound patterns. For example, say, “Coo, coo, ca, coo” Ask them to repeat your sounds. Then ask them to come up with a new pattern, and you repeat it. See if you can make the patterns harder by going faster or adding more sounds.

Your child must use their focus, memory, and self-control to pay attention, remember the pattern, and follow the rules of the game. Playing sound games like these are a great way to build language skills with them in a fun way too.
