I teach at a Christian school to very small classes, and both my older group (11-14) and younger group (5-10) loved the amount of options for the Christmas carol listening calendar! Carol of the Bells and O Come, O Come Emmanuel especially led to lots of great discussion about what makes music sound victorious, joyful, and rich. Thank you Mary!
S.Q.U.I.L.T. has brought a ton of fun into our home. We have completed the composers course, the orchestra course, some of the holiday lessons and monthly listening calendars when we like the theme. I didn't find a lot of reviews from parents with older kids and thought that this was geared more towards early elementary. Our kids are 11 and 13 and have loved it. We rate every selection with a five star system and write down commentary for each one, just for fun. A real stand out month for us was the Opera month. Such a fun course and one of the big highlights in our school day.
I am a pregnant with my fourth child and actively homeschooling. This calendar has provided me an easy way for my children to not go a day without rich music appreciation. A quick scan and couple clicks and we are set after our pledge of allegiance. Thank you kindly for this product.
Squilt is a highlight during our morning time. They love it and I love how simple and “click-and-go” it is for me. I don’t have to worry about content either. It’s fabulous!
