Rather than just pointing out ears, we focused a lot on what ears can do – hear! That meant pulling out all her toys that prominently feature sounds. We listened to doorbells and animal sounds:
And musical instruments:
Find things around the house with a strong sound (like running shower water), and for each one, say “I hear with my little ear…”
I also read a book from the library called I Hear, and made sounds alongside the pages.
“I hear with my little ear… rain!”
“I hear with my little ear… the telephone!”
We also walked around the house looking for ears in family photos and paintings.
What body part should we explore next? Stay tuned!
