The gulf between 'hearing' and 'listening' is to our ears what 'looking' and 'seeing' is to our eyes! We looked at 'looking' and 'seeing' in yesterday's post where we learned that looking is passive but seeing is active, processing visual information into a world of understanding.  In the same way, we can hear noise, but in order to understand, we have to listen, that is to interpret the noise into aural communication.

Teaching our children to listen is another foundation for learning.  Early on we need them to listen to our own instructions when we tell them to do, or not to do, things.  Later in life, our children will have to listen in their school environment so that they benefit from the learning being offered.  If all they do is hear noise, the babble of their teachers and classmates, then they won't understand and won't learn.

ToucanLearn's 'thinking' activities help to train your baby's to both look and listen in fun ways.  Follow your child's learning program in ToucanLearn and they'll be set to excel when they reach school!
