I am a SAHM/WAHM of three boys ranging in age from 3 to 18. We are working on saving enough for college at the same time as affording diapers. I author a few blogs, including http://teched4kids.com. I currently teach computer information technology classes for the local university and have in the past taught workshops for kid's in technology education besides being the Kentucky State FIRST LEGO League Championship Coordinator from 2005 to 2008.
Music has been shown to tie to Math and Language skills. If you are homeschooling, music is one of the fun subjects that can be included.
A couple months ago I reviewed a cool music site my son was playing with. There are many great tools available online for incorporating a section on music. I know Beethoven’s Fifth is a favorite of my kids (and my husband).
After studying your favorite composer you can incorporate a fun craft of ‘make your own instrument’. My kid’s love making bottles into instruments (filling each with a different amount of water). You can also create drums from bowls and a whole orchestra from things you find around the house!
