Welcome to Day 2 of The 10 Days of Teaching Music!
Today I want to give you a very simple way to help your children listen to great music.
Do you know what SQUILT means? Simply put SQUILT is Super Quiet UnInterrupted Listening Time.
For example, here are my children's SQUILT Notebooking Pages as we listened to Offenbach's "Can-Can" (from Orpheus in the Underworld). You can listen to this piece here. My son's sheet (on the left) is very simple. He is a beginning listener. I don't fuss over spelling, grammar, or mechanics. I just praise him for listening!
My daughter's sheet (on the right) is a little more advanced. She knows the families of the orchestra and has more musical terminology under her belt.

See how simple it can be to listen to music with your children? I hope SQUILT is useful to you!
Tomorrow's post will feature a guest post and a great giveaway for your homeschool. If you're interested in exploring history with music you won't want to miss it!
