Music and the art should be an integration into everyday learning, but as it is often phased out of classrooms we as parents and educators have to take action to make this education happen. Every resource for arts and music is invaluable so please feel free to share yours with our community here so that many children may benefit! Here are only a few that I have to start us off, and there will be MANY more to come.
The NASA KIDS CLUB is a really fun site for kids elementary school ages. There are cool sound effects that make the experiences realistic and exciting. There are tons of interactive games at 5 different skill levels. Many of the games are math based such as "Addition Blast Off" so that you can incorporate this technology into your math and space units where appropriate. There are photos and history blurbs about past flights and crews. Your child can find out his/her age and weight on the different planets and moons. Puzzles, coloring sheets and the normal resources are all there too, with special sections featuring Elmo and Buzz Lightyear.
Do you have a child that is passionate about art but not so enthusiastic about reading and writing? Perhaps they could use some exciting motivation to engage in learning that feels more like a game! Or maybe your child loves to read and write and needs more creative outlets to express themselves. I found a brilliant site where children can create their own comic strips and it is really fun! Give your child the opportunity to combine technology and creativity while having a blast writing for fun!
