Preparing your Preschooler for School- Discriminating Sound

Here is another challenge for your child to encourage him/her to pay close attention to environmental sounds. I hope that enjoyed the last game that I posted about.

If you have not yet read the article, you really should as it explains the educational reasons behind games such as these. Please click here to read the article. Discriminating environmental sound correctly and with ease is a prerequisite for phonics.


Click here to play the Listen and Match Game

Your child needs to  listen and match the cans that make the same sounds. As you can see there are no visual cues at all!! The can on the bottom shelf needs to be dragged up to make a match. This game is a much greater challenge than Bailey Bear. If your child found that game way too easy then this is for you!

Have fun,

Miss Mernagh 🙂
