"I love these card sets by ColorCards - they are excellent photos using people of all ages ... Used with the pictures it is a good activity and enjoyed by all the pupils I tried it with. It promotes listening, attention and auditory processing and can also be used for verbs and general vocabulary." NAPLIC Newsletter "I have found them [Listening Skills] extremely useful. The children were motivated by the pictures and enjoyed discriminating the sounds. ... I would recommend them as a valuable listening resource ... and certainly the CD format is much easier to present than the tape." Independent Talking Points
'Outdoor Sounds' is a sound and picture matching activity. There are forty different sounds on the CD and forty matching laminated cards. The sounds are arranged in four groups of ten. For each group, there is an accompanying set of ten cards. Some of these outdoor sounds may be less familiar than the 'Indoor Sounds' of Set 1. They are more dependent on individual experience, and you may have to help students to identify some of them.
