Sing and sign (canta si gesticuleaza)

Published by admin at 8:08 pm under Evenimente educationale

Music for babies was a big hit with  baby Samuel. Unsurprisingly he loved the drums, especially the sticks which he kept in his mouth as much as he could while still  occasionally hitting the drums .

The next step for Samuel was singing  and signing. This is touted as   the new language for babies to bridge between babbling and speech. He liked this, especially enjoying the signs for cow, horse and fluffy chicken (see the images below during the class).

On the more intelectual side his mum took him also to a harp concert in a local exhibition centre.  For a full 15 minutes Samuel stood quiet and completely enthralled with the magic sound coming from the harp.

(RO): Muzica pentru bebelusi a avut un succes deosebit cu baby Samuel. Oarecum nesurprinzator  i-a placut toba, mai ales betele, pe care a incercat sa le rontaie cat a putut de mult in timp ce ocasional lovea in toba.

Urmatorul pas a fost ‘canta si gesticuleaza’.  Aparent,  studii stiintifice au demostrat ca gesticulatul pe ritm de muzica contribuie la dezvoltarea intelectului inainte ca bebelusul sa poata vorbi. Nu stiu daca subscriem sau nu la teoria de mai sus dar ce e clar e ca lui Samuel i-a placut sa gesticuleze, in particular semnele pentru vaca, cal si puisor ciufulit (vezi imaginile atasate din timpul lectiei).

Pe o latura mai intelecuala, mama lui l-a dus intr-o zi si la un mini-recital la harpa care a avut loc  ca preambul la o  expozitie in Liverpool.  Surprins de sunetul harpei, Samuel a stat aproape nemiscat timp 15 minute ascultand fermecat.

    Avand in vedere ca il vedem pentru prima data pe Samuel ne permitem o remarca: s-a nascut un britanic intr-o familie de romani !!! Nu ii putem ura decat sa ia ce e mai bun de la ambele natiuni: sa fie ordonat ca un britanic, iubitor si entuziat ca romanii si sa isi depaseasca parintii in cariera !!! Draga Samuel, cumetrii parintilor tai iti ureaza multa sanatate si spera sa te intalneasca cat de curant !!!

    Ieri 29 Septembrie este prima zi cind Samuel a mers. Citiva pasi mici care pentru noi sint foarte mari. S-a intimplat sa fie si aniversarea casatoriei lui Doinita cu Ovidiu (3 ani). Multi inainte!
    Yesterday the 29th of September was a beautiful day for all of us. The day when Samuel walked for the first time! Watch out the space for more exciting news!
