Today I am sharing a fun sound activity I did with Thumper for the Virtual Book Club for Kids. This month they are focusing on Bill Martin Jr. We have LOVED reading many of his books this month.
For our activity we settled on this one:
My toddlers favorite line lately is “I hear something? What is it?” After reading this book I knew we needed to do a sound activity.
First I gathered up pictures of animals we had
Next I collected sound bytes that corresponded to our animals. I mainly used these two websites for our animal sounds:
http://lettersnstuff.com/sounds/animals/animal3.htm (Best frog sound)
I had hoped to take our signs outside and make it an active activity by running to the animals or squirting them with a squirt-gun. However the weather just wouldn’t cooperate so indoors it was!
After reading the book we pulled out our file of animal sounds. After listening to a sound he would run over and collect the picture that went with the animal.
We would then try to imitate the animal in some way, either sounding like it or moving like that animal. We also talked a little bit about each type of animal. Such as what color it was, what it does (like a bee makes honey) etc.
This activity was Easy Peasy but so much fun! Thumper even requested a round 2 the next day so we gathered our Duplo animals and gave it another try adding in some new animal sounds. (excluding the giraffe, we never could find a sound clip for it!)
Thanks for stopping in. On a personal note I want to say thanks to those who do the Virtual Book Club for kids. I had the opportunity to win one of the Melissa and Doug giveaways this summer and choose some fun things for our family to use. In addition to that, it encouraged us to vary our reading and activities this summer!
