  • Listen to the world; we want a quick-eared baby.

Babies develop the ability of hearing since they are in mommy’s belly so many parents start their prenatal education with music and voice. However, the further skill of listening has to be waited until one year old. In other words, babies can recognize the sound and its meaning after one year old.

There are two parts of hearing ability: the listening comprehension ability and the auditory memory ability. The listening comprehension ability allows babies to recognize different sounds. And, the auditory memory ability stores the experience of each sound. Babies will use these memories to make voices or even talk when their articulator is well-developed.

Therefore, the listening comprehension ability is an important basic foundation for language learning. Babies can recognize the sounds of tonality, tone, feeling and grammar by hearing via their ears. The babies who are good at the listening comprehension ability usually have talent for music learning. Moreover, they will be more willing to listen and understand the message delivered by others.

Throughout playing or training, such as discriminating two different sounds, it not only develops the sensation of hearing system but also establishes the foundation of the music and language learning; Weplay Sound Block is a good material to train the sound recognition.

The sound recognition game develops language skill.

How to play
Sound recognition- let children distinguish the different sounds by shaking the blocks in the same tempo
- Shaking one block with one hand.
- Shaking 2 blocks of the same material by 2 hands.
- Shaking 2 blocks of different materials by 2 hands.

Function
- Allow children to distinguish different sounds
- Encourage children’s hearing concentration

Observation reminder
Please start from easy to hard. If children can’t discriminate the sounds, please encourage your children, and build their interest and confidence of the activity.

Matching game: links both sounds and objects.

How to play
- Use the back cover of this booklet as a play platform.
- Have all blocks faced down on the desk.
- Ask children to shake the blocks.
- Follow the sounds to recognize.
- Place each block on the play platform which matches the block color, sound and material.

Function
- Develop the listening comprehension ability.
- Promote the matching ability by hearing and watching.

Observation reminder
A group game will make the game more interesting.

How to play
- Children sing or listen to a song and accompany with Sound Blocks as instruments. We make some sound effects with Sound Blocks during the song. For example, when children finish a small part of song, they can shake the blocks once. When they finish the whole song, they can shake the blocks twice.

Function
- Develop the ability of music rhythm
- Encourage to discriminate and memorize different sounds

Observation reminder
Using different types of songs and choosing different Sound Blocks will make the game so much fun.
