Enhancing Early Years Listening Skills: 5 Engaging Exercises and Their Valuable Benefits

Sound Scavenger Hunt

Take children on a listening walk or scavenger hunt, where they listen for specific sounds in their environment. This activity enhances auditory discrimination, concentration, and listening skills. It also promotes observation, curiosity, and mindfulness.

Story Listening

Read aloud to children and engage them in discussions about the story. This activity improves listening comprehension, attention span, and language development. It also fosters imagination, critical thinking, and empathy.

Listening Games

Play games like “Simon Says” or “Musical Statues” that require active listening and following instructions. This activity enhances listening skills, concentration, and self-control. It also promotes turn-taking, cooperation, and body awareness.

Sound Sorting

Provide a variety of objects or pictures and ask children to sort them based on the sounds they make. This activity improves auditory discrimination, categorisation skills, and phonological awareness. It also promotes critical thinking and problem-solving.

Listening to Music

Play different genres of music and encourage children to listen attentively. This activity enhances auditory perception, appreciation for music, and emotional expression. It also promotes relaxation, creativity, and mood regulation.
