SQUILT=Super Quiet UnInterrupted Listening Time
So excited to review SQUILT Volume 2!
Ten classical composers to delight and incredible in-depth music study for my musical family and this musically illiterate mama.
In this free printable, there are four quadrants for kids to fill in either with writing or drawing to represent what they hear.
We began out of order, with Beethoven, since that’s in our history line-up this quarter. We loved it so much we knocked out two lessons in one afternoon!
Most of the notebooking is very adaptable to my learners – age 3-12! Alex loved coloring his listening page and the girls loved listening and learning about the different instruments, mood, and patterns.
Tori loved the freedom to complete her notebooking with drawing instead of writing words.
I printed out the posters in the curriculum and we went over all the terms as a family. I clicked on the YouTube videos and Dad hooked up the laptop to the TV so we had BIG sound. It was awesome. Love some of those pieces comparing styles of the Fifth and the kids all were quite opinionated!
Liz did more reading that the others, but we’ve studied a little Beethoven before. I just love Fur Elise.
We plan to finish with the third Beethoven lesson next week and then go through the other composers one a week.
Great copywork, notebooking pages, info and fun YouTube videos linked in this comprehensive music curriculum. We all love it!
Open and Go. I love the ease of it. I don’t have to know anything about music. But I don’t feel stupid. It’s as much fun for me as the kids and we all learn together.
Volumes 3 (Romantic) and 4 (Modern Eras) will be available in 2014.
Each DIGITAL volume contains 10 lessons, including printables, links, and everything you will need to guide your students through their SQUILT activities. The only supplies required are an internet connection and basic school supplies!
