listening and speaking activities

It is great to play games with your child to improve their communication and language, below I have listed a few ideas of activities you can play with your child at home. 




Adding Adjectives:

Collect a tray of household objects, cover the tray with a towel or blanket. Ask your child to pick one without looking. Can they tell you what it is and add an adjective to describe it. E.G: “ A round plate.”


Listening for sound:

Using a musical instrument (Pots and pans or a sound on your phone.) Ask your child to close their eyes whilst you play the sound in a part of the room. Can your child point to where they can hear the sound coming from.


Likes & Dislikes:

Talk to your child about things they like and dislike. This could be toys, food, clothes, weather etc. Once you have discussed this you could draw a picture or a poster to represent this.


Special Person:

Can you think of a special person in your life and talk about what makes them special to you. You might want to make this person a card with all of the reasons written inside. If this person lives outside of your household you might like to post it to them.


Remembering Game:

Tell your child a simple story, or read them a story book. Ask your child to recall the story back to you.

To encourage your child to add detail to their recall you could ask them questions EG. “Mrs.Brown went on holiday and ate an Ice-Cream.” You could ask “What did Mrs.Brown eat?”

You could extend this by taking it in turns to create your own story.

EG. Parent- “Mrs.Brown went on holiday…” Child- “She played in the sea….”


Spot the difference:

You might want to use dressing up items for this or just your own clothes. One person changes their appearance in some way whilst the other closes their eyes. (E.G- Take off/Put on glasses) see if the other person can notice what is different.
