Movement By Music
Free time to play. I love the little reminder of how important it is for children when things like this occur and I actually happen to notice.
When the music was suddenly turned up at our place I couldn’t help but notice. I observed my six year old son sitting very close to a speaker playing with his Lego. He had obviously felt some vibration from the speaker so turned up the volume and felt it with his hand. Moments later he was in full exploration mode, (shooting me that ‘hope you don’t mind’ look) while tipping the speaker over to put some nearby objects onto it. Excited to see some movement, he added a feather found on the floor and gradually broke up his Lego into smaller pieces.
Nothing needed to be said… he had discovered sound waves on his own while experimenting with the effects of object size/weight and volume.
