Two year old Jack wants to play with the instruments. The practitioner joins in and supports his interests. Other children join in too.
- How do we know what Jack is interested in? Be specific, look out for body language, actions, gestures.
- Which development areas, characteristics of learning are evident?
- How does the adult support Jack’s learning?
- What is valuable about the materials provided and the way the environment is organised?
What are your thoughts about:
- What and how was Jack learning?
- What communication skills did he use to be understood?
- The role of the adult in this interaction – how did she support Jack (and the other children)?
- The effectiveness of the environment and resources provided?
What would you do to:
- Support Jack’s development of his own ideas of what to do?
- Encourage Jack’s love of rhymes and rhythm further?
- Model adults use of musical instruments for Jack?
- Do you need to make more time for this kind of relaxed interaction to arise, to allow children to have ideas and to explore resources to find out what things do?
