Story Time @ Home: Sounds All Around

By FPL_Kayla

You heard right! You can bring all our story time fun home! Here are some fun activities that your family can do to explore the many sounds all around you. Besides being mostly screen-free and lots of fun, these activities help to build those crucial listening skills. If you haven’t already, check out our Sounds All Around story time with Miss Kayla!

READ - Check out the book list Sounds like… Story Time! for more great books about the sounds all around us! Bonus: Reading aloud to your child is super beneficial, so make sure to read these books together!

SING – Sing along with TumbleBooks in their TumbleTunes read-alouds. They have lots of popular nursery rhymes and fun songs for you and your little one. You can access the TumbleBooks resource with your Frisco Library Card. Don’t have one? Sign up today!

PLAY - Work on those listening skills by having a Freeze Dance Party. Play your child's favorite music. When the music stops, everybody freeze! Bonus: This activity is a great way to work on self-regulation; a super important skill for kindergarten readiness.

TALK - Talk about the sounds you hear around you. Try this Sound Bingo. See if you can get three in a row! You can play this game at home, in the park, or on a car ride. Just make sure to keep your eyes and ears open!

WRITE - Practice your writing and drawing skills with these printables, write the letter V and write the number 5, from Miss Humblebees. Want more writing and coloring practice? Check out Miss Humblebee’s Academy!
