This is a listening activity as well as a matching activity. It was hard to find sounds for toys so there are only nine, but there will be a part two. It won’t have sounds, but it’ll include more toys. I hope you enjoy it. This would probably be too hard for kids younger than four or five, but you could just have them listen to the sounds or print out a duplicate set of pictures and have them match them.
I started the Play2Grow blog to network with other childcare providers. I’m currently working on my masters in early childhood studies with a concentration in administration and management. I’m a preschool teacher working with children from ages two and a half to five. I've been a volunteer in the infant and toddler rooms which was a great experience. I’ve had several part-time jobs at other childcare centers and have completed an internship in 2009. I have a bachelors degree in mental health and human services and certifications in child development and infant/toddler orientation. I enjoy working with children and planning creative activities for them. I believe that play is the best way for them to learn.
On a personal note, I have two spoiled cats. I spend a lot of time on the computer either writing entries for the blog, finding articles for my animal related Pawlog twitter feed or reading random things that I find. I enjoy the outdoors as well. If you have any comments or questions, E-mail me at email@example.com.
