Thistles and biscuits has done it again! My family uses this for Fridays and it has been so interesting. It has those lovely hand painted watercolor flash cards, book lists (some of the books on the book list include CDs to listen to as well), Spotify play list, and composer spot light. We have learned about instruments we had no idea existed, and to hear them is quite an experience. Lively discussions have ensued! We have also learned to consider where we get our music to be considerate of the artist, something I had not thought of before . Do not hesitate to add this to your curriculum.
