I love taking advantage of an opportunity to provide an experience, especially when those experiences play off of the interests of my child (which they usually do). Setting up INVITATIONS typically involves manipulatives, loose parts, tools, etc. Well, they can also involve music! My son is a lover of all things musical. We PAINT TO MUSIC, dance to music, and he’s been attempting to PLAY MUSIC (drumming at age 3) since he was developmentally able.
I set this invitation up for him last year (and have been meaning to blog about it since). At the time, his favorite song was Wagon Wheel, and the day I initially found it for him, I noticed him really studying the guitar playing in the video.
An invitation to play along.
When we follow our children’s lead, they are typically more engaged, and music is incredibly engaging for my son. He played this song over and over again, and asked me to video tape him. You can see him trying to follow along with his guitar.
