The Power of Observation with Toddlers: An Investigation of Music
Observation is a simple yet powerful tool that allows teachers to discover the desires, needs, and interests of a child. Beyond planning for immediate needs, taking time to observe for the deeper meaning of a child's interactions with people, objects, and their environment provides
opportunity not only to enhance curriculum but for teachers to engage in reflective practice.
