Classroom Benefits

What sound do ducks make? How about mice? Sheep? Children are always interested in the different sounds animals make. For non-native English speakers, it's particularly enlightening to understand that there are different words for what animals say in different languages!

Activity Ideas

Play animal sound "touch." Spread some or all of the animal cards on the table or floor in front of you. When you make the sound of one of the animals, your child tries to find the card and touch it. Ask the child, "What is it?" The child can answer, "It's a cat/dog/duck etc." Switch places. 1
