Love that it has links! We had fun with the musicals this month. Had trouble casting but don’t think that was a squilt issue so much as a YouTube/fire stick
Signing up for February as soon as we get paid :)
My boys enjoy hearing the different music and watching pieces of musicals.
The January listening calendar was a wonderful addition to my teens' morning time. Sparked lots of fun conversations.
My children, ages 7-13 have enjoyed the Baroque SQUILT so I decided to get the Christmas carols for December. I will definitely get the next volume next Christmas
Perfect for displaying in our homeschool room and a simple way to add to our music education and awareness.
We are enjoying the Christmas Carols study. My son likes the Draw What You Hear sheets, and we are learning a lot about music through listening for the different elements on the notebooking pages. I would love if we had access to a private playlist for the music in addition to the links in the document. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and I'm looking forward to more in the future.
We loved playing this in my homeschool co-op class! The kids had a blast and it was great to mix up listening time with a hands-on game.
I have kids aged 10-16 and we all look forward to SQUILT each day. Even the selections we don’t enjoy lead to rich conversation, and I can see that we are all becoming more aware of what we like, and of the talent and the work that goes into the creation of music. I also very much love how simple it is and that there is no prep work.
My Grandson is 9 yrs old and is enjoying the Squilt series Meet the Composers as his first music appreciation class. He said " I like the music it makes me feel good and the composers are very interesting".
The listening calendar has been a simple fun addition to our day. It has sparked fun and thoughtful conversations some laughter, and the longer we go with it the more musical and instrument recognition my kids have gained. I also personally look forward to the songs each day! It has expanded all of our worlds.
My kids and I truly enjoy the listening calendar! I have 13 to 4 year old students and they all love it. Matter fact, it's the one subject we do every day.
We really love the monthly Listening Calendar! It's a fun addition to our school day and an easy way to add music appreciation to our lives!
Doing the Listening Calendar for the first time, my kids are learning to be quiet and listen to great music pieces. Excellent product, thank you
We aren't a musically inclined family, but since we've started SQUILT, my kids fight over who gets to watch it first! (In a good way). They are mesmerized by the visual of instruments and selected slide shows, so to speak. It has certainly increased our music discussions. I didn't know how to tap into music, and the calendar has really helped. Thanks!
What a blessing the listening calendars are to our homeschool! We love the variety and simplicity of just listening and discussing what we hear. Thank you Mary!!
Theses posters are so helpful to pull out during our lessons. Love the design.
