Q:

Do you have any activities that could set my kids on the right path to becoming good listeners? - Parent of a Preschooler

A:

Try these activities to work on your children's listening skills:

  • Go outside two or three different times in the day. Everyone should shut his or her eyes and listen for several minutes. Then in turn, everyone should tell one thing that he or she heard until all the sounds have been named.
  • Use books in which your children press a button to hear sounds from the story.
