I’ve been using the whole Squilt program with my kids ages 6-9 this year homeschooling, and I’ve found the Meet the Instrument cards enormously helpful in teaching them in a fun way! We’ve played games, matching and categorizing with them, and also just having them around to refer to has been helpful. Definitely recommend them!
I purchased the Nutcracker along with the Christmas Bundles. Very excited to share and learn with my kids this upcoming holiday season!!
This is my first year homeschooling my three kids (ages 6-9). I had no idea what to do for music lessons! This has been fun and easy to use, the kids love it and it introduces so many musical concepts and music we otherwise probably would not have talked about or discovered. I highly recommend it!
We have really enjoyed several of the SQUILT listening calendars this year. The Songs of America calendar was disappointing, and I have ended up skipping many of the songs because they lack interest and variety. Hopefully the next calendar will be more similar to those we enjoyed in the spring and summer.
Posters work very good as reminder of the different elements of music. More useful for me, than for the kids
We have purchased many SQUILT monthly listening calendars and it remains one of our most favorite aspects of our morning gatherings. We could not be more grateful for this resources.
My children are 9, 6, and 4. This has been a wonderful introduction to the instruments of the orchestra. I'm so thankful to have this addition to our weekly lesson plan.
We use these cards to quickly review the composers we have studied. I love the info on the back of each composer’s card.
My kids really enjoyed listening to the Ghanaian music in particular. Thanks for the wide variety of music!
My five-year-old girl absolutely loves music, but I have been wanting to introduce her to more than modern radio stations and Disney soundtracks. I am so thankful for the listening calendar for her Kindergarten year! For one, it is a wonderful start to our day where she uses watercolors to express her thoughts. Secondly, I did not have to do anything but download the calendar and push play. In fact, I also enjoy the amazing selections and get to join in with music appreciation. Additionally, as she is still young, it is perfect to warm her up until she is ready for the live lessons. We will definitely continue to use the listening calendar and look forward to all the upcoming themes!
My six year old loves the flashcards that come with this set, and we've really enjoyed the list of videos showcasing the different instruments as well. It's a great introduction to orchestras. Also, the customer service from Squilt is amazing. Any questions I have are always answered so kindly and promptly!
100% disappointed. WAY OVER priced. I printed the cards and that is it. The description made it seem like there was more to the package. Waste of money. I do not recommend
