PLAYING TOGETHER AT HOME
by Preschools and Infant-toddler centres – Istituzione of the Municipality Reggio Emilia, and Reggio Children
The intention behind this proposal is to focus on the concept of listening through an experience where we concentrate on our ears and our sense of hearing.
When we listen our ears don’t just receive sounds, they send them directly to the brain and set off a creative thinking process: listening is a marvellous combination of thoughts and hearing processes, it takes curiosity and a desire for discovery.
Taking advantage of the evocative power of sound we’d like to offer you some sound riddles because as Caterina, a girl aged 5 years 4 months says, Sometimes sounds seem to be one thing but [really] they’re something else.
We hope you have fun listening to these riddles together with children, trying to guess what produced them, and imagining what else they could be.
What is it?
What does it remind you of?
Where might you have heard the sound?
Let your imagination run away with you… even though we’re cooped up at home perhaps we’ll feel like we’re somewhere else.
The game will be continued…
