They associate the sound with the electronic devices and may make the alarm sound when viewing the pictures. Have you seen a child hold up a pretend umbrella when the word umbrella is spoken or sung in a song? Children learn with all of their 5 senses, so they may demonstrate their learning in more than one way. It is always fun to see what they do and say!
