What is in the Egg? Sound Shake Activities
This is fun Easter activities for a wonderful holiday celebration. The important thing is that it’s not only fun. Sound shake is activity for exercising early listening skills. Pre-phonemic listening is generally the first of phonemic skills to develop. These are not just for kids who can’t talk yet. It could be warm-up or introductory activities to do before practicing more advanced skills. This activity designed to develop the memory and attentional abilities too.
To make this game, you’ll need about an even number of colored plastic eggs.
Put small objects like beads, bells, dry beans, etc., into pairs of eggs.
Place all the eggs on a table. Pick up two of the eggs; shake first one, then the other. Ask your child if they sound the same or different.
If they sound the same, try to identify sounds. Then open both eggs to see what made the sound.
If different, put one down and pick up another egg and repeat the test. Continue until you find a match. To identify single sounds is very important in the language games to come.
