Today in our pedagogy class we will talk about the rewarding.
When working with little ones, it is very important to master the art of immediately noticing and rewarding, every positive movement he makes, with 'musical money.'
You can make butterflies or flags from construction paper or buy coins in any dollar store.
You also need to be able to quickly and clearly say, exactly what the child has done correctly and why he is getting a butterfly, a flag or a coin.
Don't be afraid to include in this list of achievements even small actions like: 'He wasn't swinging his legs for a few seconds,' 'He took his finger out of his mouth, 'He tried to sing the note do in the first octave.' Even if the child simply nodded and didn't even think about it, count that as a credit to him. In this way the toddler starts to understand, that we are really working with him and also what is expected of him so as to become a good student. He will certainly not want you to be disappointed in him and will want to come again and again!
We all learn very well how notice mistakes. To learn how to see positive changes is challenge for most of us. Therefore, 'music money' supposed to be used for the positive re-enforcement only with your toddler. Please, keep it mind always!
Share with me your thoughts and observations in your home classroom! Let's work together on this very important goal: making your child feel appreciated as a student.
