The Sound Box!

“I have found 4 diamonds and I am 4years old too.”
“I got star in my egg – twinkle twinkle little star.”
“Oh I found sea shells and they’re five.”

Today in the Music area children have been playing and exploring different resources to make sound from the “The sound box musical listening and guessing game”.

They were singing;Here’s a box, here’s a lid, can you guess, inside what’s hid? Can you guess? Can you hear? If you listen with your ear! Children love routine and order, and this repeated sequence of singing, shaking, guessing, counting and then remembering at the end appeals to them. They love the reasoning and predicting element and are reassured by the repetitive pattern of the game.
The children were helping each other to count that how many pennies or shells there are inside.
