Every time I post a video, someone immediately emails me asking for something more. You want something basic and simple. Something you can use this afternoon. I recommend using lots of things like the animal erasers, but you’d like some suggestions on how to use them.
Here’s a video of me teaching Sabine about sharps and flats. It’s completely unedited on purpose. I wanted you to have a little glimpse into a typical Wednesday afternoon at my studio.
As you watch this short video, ask yourself:
- Is Sabine excited about using the animals?
- Why would I suggest she use two animals at first instead of just having her move one animal to the sharp?
- How do I react when she does something wrong?
- Exactly how do I correct her mistake?
- I let her tell me a story about a flat tire. Do you think it was worth the time?
- Do you think she’ll remember sharps and flats better after this lesson?
Note: Extra credit for spying her sister, Iliana sneaking past holding the Egyptology book. If you haven’t seen the “ology” books, I highly recommend them. Pirateology is another favorite in my studio. They’re great books for a waiting area. Though, I am embarrassed to admit that in my studio everyone’s favorite are the completely garish and disgusting Guinness World Records Books.
Sabine a few years ago. Already sitting tall.
