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.
