This week I am taking the time to talk about how I teach each subject and also what changes I am making for the rest of the year. If you didn't read the Classical Kindergarten...Take Two intro post, take a minute to read that first so you understand why I am making some changes for the rest of the year.
How we have been incorporating the arts
This is one subject that isn't so concrete in our homeschool, so we are not really making any specific changes. What I do want, is to try to spend more time with all aspects of the arts. This is especially important to me because my daughter shows strong interest in art and music and I want to make sure to give her ample time and resources to do these things. She is just 3 years old now, but she loves to watch YouTube videos of people playing classical music, which has caused her to be obsessed with the violin =) It's pretty much all she talks about and she walks around most of the day with two red sticks pretending to play. I told her that if she shows a little responsibility with a toy guitar we got her for Christmas that we could get her a violin for her birthday. Here is a video of her playing her 'violin' and singing Hark! the Herald Angles Sing...
So for the sake of my music-loving daughter (and because I know it's good for everyone), we include all kinds of art in our homeschool. I've written about most of it before. Here are some of the posts:
