Animal Sounds

“Animal House”

Animal sounds are often easiest for children to make because they don’t have a lot of consonants. Children tend to produce the sound an animal makes before saying its actual name.

  • Sing songs such as “Old MacDonald Had a Farm.”
  • Look through picture books of animals.
  • Play with animal toys.
  • Produce the appropriate animal sounds as you point to the pictures.
  • Encourage your child to imitate the sound associated with the animal you point to.
  • Repeat the sounds often and pause to allow your child to respond.
