I was working with one 3yr old. We were copying “postures from nature”. We began with making posture for various things we see around us like mountain, tree table etc – I did not show him my actions, I asked him to make his own actions. His actions were completely different than what one would teach to the child.
In my early days I used to demonstrate and the kids would copy – I know, still they all make the same action for mountain posture. I closed their mind before they could open up or think 🙂
This child made absolutely different actions and I was happy to learn to look at tree posture in different way.
