My plan today was to add some new resources to the Kid Links and write a short blog post telling you about it.
As I was looking through the Kid Links page, I noticed there was only one link to a website about music. On a whim, I decided to look for more resources to add to that topic. What I found while looking for some fun things for the kids, was amazing.
So, this post is kind of a three in one special. The Kid Links will get updated with some fun music resources, Homeschool4free will get some great new music resources (I don’t even know if it has a music page yet?), and you will get a great blog post telling you about all of these amazing links. (note: Homeschool4free did not have a Music Page, but it does now!)
At the risk of being detailed, I feel that I need to explain something…. Kid Links is a page of links designed so that kids can go directly to specific activities and not whole websites. Homeschool4free generally includes websites with resources that mom (or dad) can use in preparing their homeschool lessons (resources or reference materials, worksheets, printables, activities, etc). Don’t worry, I will post the appropriate things to the appropriate places, and it will be done before this post (the one you are reading right now) goes up tonight.
Arts Alive Music
This website is loaded with resources. It has PDF downloads, sound clips, information, and way more than I could possibly list here. This is a must visit if you are studying classical music, the orchestra or the symphony. I have included links to 4 PDF downloads from Arts Alive at the bottom of this post. This website was added to Homeschool4free.
Classics For Kids
This website is an amazing resource for the homeschool family that desires to learn more about classical music. You can listen to classical music and information about different aspects of classical music in the section called, “On The Radio.” There are activity sheets to go with each of the radio shows. There is a wonderful Composers Timeline and some games and both of these were added to the Kid Links. There is so much more to explore at this website. This website was added to Homeschool4free.
This website is another amazing music resource for the homeschool family. You can take a virtual tour of a symphony hall. You can play some games on line that help you learn more about composers, musical symbols and more. There is much to see at this website also. This website was added to Homeschool4free and some of the activities were added to Kid Links.
San Francisco Kids Symphony
This website has some fun and interactive on-line activities for you and your kids to check out. I put the links to the Music Lab and the Instruments of the Orchestra in the Kid Links.
New York Philharmonic Kidzone
This is a fun and interactive website with 12 different activities available to play in the game room. Have a blast checking out the instruments in the storage room. Make music in the instrument laboratory. This website was added to Kid Links and Homeschool4free.
Moms, this one is just for you. Do you find yourself humming a tune and can’t quite place the name? Check out this website. This website was added to Homeschool4free.
The following links open up amazing PDF documents with information, activities, and wonderful pictures:
Introducing Beethoven Teacher’s Resource Kit
Let’s Go Mozart Teacher’s Resource Kit
Schubert’s Party: The Melody Musician
Vivaldi and the Four Seasons Teacher’s Resource Kit
Do your have any great music resources that could be added to either the Kid Links or Homeschool4free? I would love to hear about them.
