I Hear Ewe - Animal Sounds for Toddlers


Developed by:Michael Kamprath


Overview

Ages: 2-3

Entertain and educate your toddler with this simple game full of 24 different authentic animal sounds and 12 different vehicle sounds. When your baby taps on an animal or vehicle icon, the game will verbally announce what type of animal or vehicle it is and play a recording of its real sound. (iTunes)


Get Ready

Prepare to use this app by using the following activity:

Read & Be Silly!  

Choose one of your child’s favorite books with plenty of animals in it.  Read it with them and ask them to point to all of the animals while you say their names.  Perhaps they will repeat the name after you, too!  Ask them what that animal says and have fun imitating their silly sounds.  To prepare for interacting with this app, do the same activity with a book that includes any modes of transportation, too.

 

*Imitating animal sounds might seem like simple fun, but they can actually help usher along speech development milestones for your tiny talker. As your little one learns the sounds his favorite animals make, he will learn about letter sounds and inflection. A simple lesson in animal sounds will help create a pathway to talking.


Dive In!

Help your child get the most out this app experience by trying any of the following activities:

Tap, Tap & Get LOUD!

This app is very straightforward and easy for young children to use.  There are two screens of animals and one with various vehicles.  Have your child tap away and listen to the noises each animal or vehicle makes & have them imitate the noises, too!  Challenge them to say the animal and vehicle names, too.


Branch Out

Extend your child’s learning by using the following activity:

Draw & Color!  

What is your childs absolute favorite animal? What about their favorite mode of transportation?  Have them draw and color their favorites - and then make the corresponding noises of course!  

 

Scavenger Hunt!

Have your child search your home for certain animals and trucks, cars, etc.  To make it extra challenging, hide them in advance and provide a few clues.
