We are super excited again to publish our latest song, The Seven Continents. This song was another fun one to do. Anytime we can bring the girls in on the project it gets really fun really quickly. They are very musical little ladies, I guess you could say they get it naturally. Madison plays piano quite well and Chelsea is a very flexible dancer. In fact, Chesea's ballet teacher told us that she was a musical kid and it shows when we ask them to say some things in our songs. They are able to match the beat with no problem. So this is a family project and that makes all the more enjoyable.
So the song chants the 7 continents in a easy to remember cadence and the verse gives some very memorable learning aspects of each continent. The song also defines what a continent is as well as what oceans and seas are.
I do hope that you guys enjoy the songs and are able to incorporate them into your home school. If you do, please let us know here on the blog, or on our YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/sillyschoolsongs.
We are excited that our human ear model came in the mail today. It is a little smaller than I thought but it matches the size and shape of a 9 year old's ear perfectly.
Now here is the 50 States and Capitals project that Madison has been working on for about a month. We are just taking our time with it. She has already learned all 50 States with their capitals and initials. In this project, she traces the outline of the state, maps the capital and any prominent lakes or rivers, she draws and colors a replica of the state flag, and draws and colors the state bird.
I love it for several reasons, one main one is because she does it first thing in the morning which gives me time to work with Chelsea first thing. Here is what we have affectionately called her "wall of accomplishment."
Oh an yes, I drew each state FREE HAND in pencil onto poster board. Not bad if I say so myself.
Thanks for reading and listening!
This is great, what an excellent resource. Children learn so well through music. Thanks for sharing this at Good Morning Mondays. Want to do some Australian studies this year, this is where we live, and your project on the states has given me a great idea. BlessingsReplyDelete
Oh excellent! And you know what...we are just taking our time with it. It is a long term project, but as you can see we are consistent with it and she really enjoys it! Thank you so much for hosting the link up and for stopping by to comment.Delete
Thanks for sharing the continent song! Music makes memorization so much easier. :-)ReplyDelete
Thank you Sara! I agree, and we are so happy to be able to help home schools and educators out just a bit with the learning process!Delete
