mother writes and gives us this great idea:
"A while back I copied the baby freebees off of the "Listen up
and talk up" page of your web site. Now that my 16 month old son has
CI and is in AV therapy, I have been looking for ways to incorporate
beginning sounds into our lives. I discovered that I could print
all of those beginning words/sound pictures (moo/cow, quack/duck,
stick them all over the house (washer, dryer, refrigerator, computer
etc.) can even take them in the car the baby can stick them on the
bottom of a
small cookie sheet while I drive and it keeps him from pulling off his
while in the car. My son loves them he pulls them off and moves them
them on 100 times a day, good way for me to keep talking with him
getting other things done. Be sure to make them big enough (4" at
so the little ones don't eat 'em. Also, I cut out the pictures off of
Christmas present packaging so some of the magnets match some of the
use for sound play."
mother tells us:
"I just got a magnet maker and another thing you
is to play "go fish" with them....just buy a cheap dowel, attach and
and a magnet...although the magnet isn't always strong enough it works
enough for the little guys. Also I use clip art and pictures in
the learning to listen pictures."
