The pictures are simple yet realistic. The size of the cards are just right. This is a fantastic resource that finally interested my children in the instruments of the orchestra when conversation and picture books just weren't capturing their attention. On her own, my 8 year old used the cards as flash cards and memorized all the instruments quickly, which is amazing considering she had no desire to learn about them before these cards!
We’re really enjoying our SQUILT products! They’re short enough to keep our young kids’ attention, but still have a lot of information in them.
I ordered this partly for our own homeschool, and also to help teach our American Heritage Girls unit for their Music Appreciation badge. The illustrations are very clear and well-done. Each of the girls (ages 6-8) caught on within 10 minutes how the instruments are part of 4 main families. The videos are great for exploring sounds of instruments that I don't have. It is well-worth the purchase to have these, as well as the video links, at your fingertips when planning the lesson.
Meet the Instruments: Exploring the Orchestra
I cannot wait to start this with my kids next week! The cards are gorgeous and full of great information! I have already previewed a few of the links provided and know my kids will enjoy them. Great addition to our homeschool music appreciation!!
