Sounds From the Home

This listening activity uses sounds that anyone can find in or around their home. I hope everyone enjoys them and that they aren't too hard for the kids. I tried coming up with sounds for a community theme such as the grocery store, pet store, post office, bank etc. I didn't find good clear sounds and I thought the kids would have a hard time telling the difference between some of the places. maybe I'll combine some of those sounds with a jobs theme. I still have a few other ideas for sound activities. I will be posting other types of activities as well during the upcoming week.

  2. Thanks for the comments. I find the sounds online from a number of sites. It's taken me years to build up the sound collection that I have. I stil search for new sounds if and when I need them. Some sites are sounddogs.com or a1freesoundeffects.com. Sometimes I end up searching Google if I have a specific sound that I want.
