Listen for the Silly Sentence

A Funny Listening game
Listen for the Silly Sentence is an fun activity that helps with listening skills and beginning reading comprehension skills.  It also helps keep them busy in the car and while you are waiting somewhere.
Listen for the Silly Sentence
Here’s how it works: Say a sentence with something mixed up and have your child tell you what is silly in the sentence. Then ask, “What should it say?”
B loved this activity and kept saying “Do another one! Do another one!”. Just make up the sentences as you go.
Here are a few sentences to get you started: 
  • The cow and pig live on the pond.
  • The book was so huge I could fit it in my pocket.
  • My dog was mad and wagging his tail.
  • The monkeys were growling at me.
