Exploring Musical Instruments




Last week Cohort 10 had opportunities to check out some musical instruments and experiment with the different sounds they could make with them. The instruments were in a large basket for the infants to explore when they felt ready. F inched closer and observed them for a minute before taking three out. Then L picked up a maraca and noticed that it made a sound. After moving it slowly a few times, she shook it fast and smiled at the sound!



















The next time we checked out musical instruments, S and E immediately made their way over to the basket! They were very interested in how they could use them and surprised to find that they each made a unique noise when you shook them. F heard the sounds and worked on safely helping his body come down from the shelf and joined the fun! Our cohort's favorite instrument is the maraca!
