Soundabout Life: Level 3 | Card: 28 | Category: Interactive

Extending patterns of imitation to three people or more can be very motivating

  • Sit in a small circle of three or four people
  • Make sure that the people are sitting really close together to give me a better chance of seeing or feeling what is going on
  • The person sitting next to me begins by making a sound with their voice
  • The person next to them copies it, and the sound starts to go round the circle
  • When it is my turn, pair me up with someone else,so we make a sound together to begin with
  • Allow lots of time to enable me to get a sense of what is happening
  • Pass the sound around using a small musical instrument like a shaker
  • Use a resonance board if you have one, so that I can feel the sounds in my body
  • Gradually include more people
