Every Friday, I’ll send you a wonderful website (or more) that my classes and my parents love. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of your students as they are of mine.
Integrate music into the classroom
My students aren’t always geeks who live and breath tech as I do. Some of them have other hobbies–art, sports, even music. For them, I offer websites that will enhance that experience in ways they hadn'[t imagined. Here’s my list of music websites for elementary school-age students as young as first grade:
- Beat Lab
- Click the Square; Create Music (one of my favorites)
- Music Games
- Dallas Symphony Orchestra for Kid
- San Francisco Symphony Kids SIte
- Jake the Philharmonic Dog
- Carnegie Hall
- Music with hands
- Nashville Symphony
- Play Music
- Classics for Kids
- Classical KUSC
