Today in our Pedagogy section we will learn about the first stage of your toddler's Soft Mozart development:
The Spiders and Butterflies Investigation Stage
Often many teachers and parents are confused, that the child, after coming to understanding how the program works, does not immediately carefully follow the pictures and just press down the keys corresponding to them. The reverse is true, the child might fall in love with different spiders and butterflies, and hold down the 'wrong' key for ages and watch the spider. Sometimes a few keys and spiders are produced together using the palm.
Why does this happen?
In each child lives an 'investigator.' An adult's goal is to play the pieces without mistakes. We grasp the logic immediately: press the wrong key–a spider appears. Hold one down too long–we see a butterfly. When don't hold one down for long enough–Mister Whoops.
The child, however, does not have the skill for quick, logical deduction. To start with the gathers sensory and interaction experiences. He not only sees a spider or a butterfly, he is trying to get a feel for them, play with them, using his imagination. You don't have to interfere! By observing, you can just guide the child's actions with the help of positive comments and also 'musical money (I will tell you a little later about this tool)
