As the mother of a two year old, I am always looking for activities that encourage learning and development. I find that most of the activities we do together that result in learning are purely by coincidence and luck – not by any skill or training I have.
As of late, my son has shown a real passion for music. He has even begun to differentiate between styles of music he likes and dislikes – his preferences are Contemporary Christian and Country, of course those both fall behind any song done by The Wiggles. But I digress. The point is, he is drawn to music and feels the need to express himself in many ways when he hears it.
For example, he has taken in various move moves from the TV characters on his most loved projects, and additionally from great old mother and father.
He reproduces those moves into his own little move routine at whatever point he hears a melody he prefers – even in the auto. He is utilizing his innovativeness and memory to convey what needs be, which I accept is helping manufacture his character.
He likewise tries to sing – well, more like murmur – however once more, this is another type of articulation and he is expanding his vocabulary by needing to state the correct words. He applauds to the music and tries his best to keep a cadence.
These are for the most part astonishing aptitudes that he is learning and utilizing as his very own part singular way. This is such an achievement age where kids start to move on from basically mimicking to joining what they know in approaches to cooperate with their general surroundings.
These exercises are empowering numerous features of improvement: physical (applauding, stepping, other move movements) social (a route for him to cooperate with people around him) subjective (he is crossing over pathways from what he’s figured out how to how he needs to utilize the data to express his own identity); enthusiastic (a distinct feeling of pride goes with all types of learning in youngsters).
In the event that your kid appreciates music, you can support them by making music promptly accessible for them without spending a fortune. I would figure they as of now have toys that make music.
A lot of books play music also. Even just turning on the radio throughout the day and finding a station that is suitable for you both can be a very rewarding experience.
Whether your child is hearing music on the television, radio, or directly from an instrument you are playing, he/she has so many opportunities for learning. Capture those moments and make the most of them!
