Awareness of Sounds

These games will help to grow the brains of infants and toddlers. Whether it’s through singing, dancing, cuddling, rocking, talking, smelling, or tasting, you can encourage the pathways of their brains to make new connections.

Learning Objective – Awareness of Sounds

Body Sounds
Before there were pianos and guitars, people made sounds with their bodies.
Think of the different parts of your body that can make a sound.
Ask the children to do the following.

Rubbing your hands together.
Hitting your hands on different surfaces,
Stamping your feet against the floor.
Slapping – open your hands against your chest, slap your thighs, and your tummy..
Clap your hands together or against someone else’s hands.
Mouth sounds – click your teeth together, rub your tongue against your lips, gargle, smack your lips.

Ideas that take this activity to the next level:
For building confidence: Do you have some favorite sounds? Can you make them now?

For developing the idea: Let’s find some pictures with people making different sounds.

For moving forward: What body sounds do you make when you are happy, sad, angry, and sleepy?
