We were thrilled to start and we were not disappointed! Something our kids, ages 5-11 each look forward to! We are new to SQUILT but have learned so much quickly, my kids are hearing music and comparing it to things we've studied. Really fun!
The layout isn't straight forward pm a Kindle or mobile device. I shouldn't have to print my own cards. I will be looking into other options for my children in the future.
What a fun way to expose and teach the instruments of the orchestra. Our girls enjoy finding the instruments their hear while listening to music. Well done!
We love the SQUILT listening calendars and try to add them during our month rotations that include music. It’s an easy and fun way to add beauty into our day and works when our family consists of a lot of littles.
We all have enjoyed our month at the movies, trying to guess which movie the piece is from and feeling the different emotions for each. So much learning going on and so much enthusiasm from the kids. It is the first thing they ask for each morning.
We decided to try out the Listening Calendar for a month. I promise you it doesn't disappoint! The kids and I love spending a small amount each day listening to a song. We get a chance to listen, point out instruments, and just enjoy music.
Loved the class! Can’t wait to take more . I really wish we understood a little bit more of the terminology but we were still able to have fun and learn
Love all of Squilt resources. They are magnificently done.
Just what our family needed to dice deep into our composer study.
I have wanted to try SQUILT for a long time now and finally bit the bullet. My kiddos, ages 6, 9, and 13, and I are absolutely loving it! If you're in the fence about joining take the plunge. You won't regret it 😁
This has been such a fun month!!! We absolutely loved the music selections so far and it’s something we look forward to each morning during our Morning Basket.
My kids are really enjoying this "new-for-us" approach to music appreciation!
I was excited to try a class for once instead of me building my own curriculum or cobbling together several resources myself. But I was a bit disheartened at first to find a link of youtube videos as the music, and some links broken. I could search for music on youtube easily, given a subject. I also was not initially impressed with the pdf packet - too many wasted pages, imo. I should have printed just the pages I wanted. I find the 4-square Dynamics/Rhythm etc page especially helpful. Perhaps I will find this packet more appealing as my children become more independent- I could hand them the packet like a book and have them read the contained information, fill out the worksheets, and then go over it together. Right now, I am reading information and presenting it for a 5&7 year old. Now, they love the curriculum and ask for it every day. That is a good sign. And I felt much better about my purchase after attending the live lesson! That felt very worth it. I did not however find it easy to know what exactly to print for the lesson and we found ourselves without all the needed information. Perhaps with time I will get that right and not have that happen again. So, content of the class and our experience with it would be 5 stars, but the pdf and youtube links get a solid 3 stars. I will continue using this for 3 months or so to see if I continue to find it worth it.
My kids are loving the listening calendar! We all have our morning cocoa/tea (me=copious amounts of coffee) and a good listen. Sparks interest, emotion, and deep meaningful conversations. Sometimes we delve deeper and other times we just discuss.
Perfect for keeping it light and fun these days- also, a movie night to follow us always a huge hit👍
Thank you SQUILT for making these kinds of days possible!
We used it today for the first time and all four of my kids, ages 11-15 enjoyed it and it led to a conversation about future jobs, hobbies and vacation plans ( we listened to jaws and Superman because they wanted more !)
