Have lots of fun with this music session, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have instruments, find whatever you can around the house to make a noise with. You could even incorporate some of the songs you know your child loves into it to keep them really engaged throughout.
Asking for more: Pause the movements during the song, encourage your child to either show that they want you to continue (vocalising, using the more symbol, making eye contact) If they do this say “You want more”, show them the more symbol and carry on the movement.
Making independent movements: Stop supporting your child to make the movements. Encourage your child to make the movement themselves.
Showing signs of anticipation: During the song, stop, wait for a few seconds and then give your child a prompt (tap on the body part you are going to touch or count 1,2,3 or make the signs for more with your child’s hands) look for signs that your child knows that you are going to continue.
Have fun with your child and the family. Everyone can join in with this session and have a fun boogie!
