Extending this activity

  • -Say the word cat and then stretch the sounds /c/…/a/…/t/. Ask the child to tell you what is the first sound, second sound, and third sound. Repeat with other words like dog or bed.

    -Read "Howard B. Wigglebottom Learns to Listen" by Howard Binkow, and discuss the benefits of good listening and the possible consequences of failing to listen carefully.

Adjust for an older child

Challenge your child and yourself to remember sequences of four, five, or six sounds. This activity strengthens the child’s ability to store and recall information which is a very important skill.

Adjust for a younger child

Provide a lot of practice with sequences of two sounds. The child needs to develop the ability to say the sound he hears 'first' and 'second' before you progress to a sequence of three or more sounds.
