In order to enhance listening for specific sounds this week we began by making shakers. Through providing rice, beans and pasta the children practised controlling their movements by using spoons to transfer these into their choice of container. When they had done this we sealed them up and painted them.
We listened to the sound that the shakers made and tried to imitate these with our mouths.
Finally we added in some music and coloured scarves and the children used their shakers to add to the music and then dance with their scarves, practising swinging them around in circles as well as high and low and slow and fast.
