I am finally adding some music resources on here! LOL We “do” music all the time but we more or less just listen and discuss. Every once in a while we might do like we did with The Nutcracker and I will have them paint or draw how the music makes them feel or what it makes them think of.
This will be just the first of many art and music unit study resources that I will do here. I have Jackson Pollock on my next list (his Birthday is January 28th)! 😉
ANYWAY, Mozart’s Birthday is January 27th and I thought there may be some people out there that will be needing some ideas and resources. 😉
I’ve been thinking about writing up a post on how we do nature studies. Is that of interest? I have tons of great pictures! 😀
I’ve also been thinking about a post on my “methods”……. I consider myself an “eclectic” homeschooler. Any interest there?
As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).
All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.
This month I decided to do something a little different…. Just a little. As you may know Jacob, our oldest son, has moved back home! YAY!!!!!! And since then we have dredged up a bit of an old family tradition. We call it “The Music Game”. In The Music Game, The Hubby will play a song and the rest of us have to name the band and the song title, extra points if you know the year. We do songs from almost all genres and spanning at least 6 decades. The older kids LOVE it and the little ones love to listen along.
So, if you were a fly on the wall at my house over the past month, here are a few songs you might have heard.
Hope you had fun!!!! These are just a few of my favorites that we have heard while playing The Music Game! 😉
It definitely helps with the kids’ musically knowledge. Maybe one day I will do a list of their favorite classical pieces. LOL
Don’t forget to check out all the amazing bloggers on the list!!!!
These songs almost make me want to get up and sing a solo! ALMOST!! LOL It’s been MANY MANY MANY years since I was brave enough to do that!! LOL But God says to make a joyful noise… I guess that’s what you could call my singing! LOL 😉
