  • Effective practice

Two year old Jack wants to play with the instruments. The practitioner joins in and supports his interests. Other children join in too.

Notice

  • 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?

Reflect

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?

Respond

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?

What next:

  • 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?
