Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Concept of loud and quiet

Activities/equipment from TAP sheet "PA Voice awareness of volume" on www.commtap.org.

Optional: "Mr Noisy" and "Mr Quiet" books, by Roger Hargreaves

1. To develop the concepts of loud and quiet, any of the activities on the TAP sheet "PA Voice awareness of volume" may be used.

2. Additionally, the stories Mr Noisy and Mr Quiet can be read to the child. You may have to explain that the words "noisy" and "loud" mean nearly the same thing.

In order to work on 'loud' and 'quiet' speech sounds, the child needs to understand the concepts of loud and quiet in general terms. These are activities to teach these concepts. If the child is already confident with the concepts of loud and quiet, it may not be necessary to work on them.

Introducing Mr Loud and Mr Quiet

Paper and drawing equipment;

Access to photocopier;

Optional: "Mr Noisy" and "Mr Quiet" books, by Roger Hargreaves

1. Create (or ask the child to create) pictures of Mr Loud and Mr Quiet. You may wish to use Roger Hargreaves's Mr Noisy and Mr Quiet as inspiration. Mr Loud should have big shoes and a large, open mouth. Mr quiet should have bare feet and a small, closed mouth.

2. Make 6-8 copies of each picture.

3. Talk about how Mr Loud makes loud sounds and likes noise, but Mr Quiet makes quiet sounds and likes silence.

4. Play 'matching pairs' with the pictures, to familiarise the child with them

This is an introductory activity for work below.

Loud or quiet speech sounds, word initially

One copy of Mr Noisy picture, 1 copy of Mr Quiet picture;

Pictures of things beginning with quiet sounds p/t/k and noisy sounds b/d/g.

Noisy sounds are: b, d, g, m, n

Quiet sounds are: p, t, c or k, 

 

Some children find it hard to hear a difference between noisy and quiet sounds at first. They may find it helpful to put their fingertips gently against/near your Adam's apple as you say the sounds. If it is a loud sound, they will feel vibrations there. If it is a quiet sound, there will not be any vibrations.

Other activities where the child has to indicate whether they hear a loud or a quiet sound include:

 

Putting the Mr. Quiet & Mr. Noisy pictures on the floor and jumping on the correct one, when you say the word.

 

Do not ask the child to say the words- this is a listening task.

Sort the letter

Cards showing the following letters/blends: c and k (on one card), b, d, f, g, h, k, l, m, n, p, r, s, t, v, w, y, z, ng, sh, th

This activity may not be suitable for children who do not already recognise some letters.
