So excited that Summer break is finally here! I've been counting down the days since they went back to school in September. There is just so much I want to do with my girls including finishing up last summer's "Mama Performing Art School" themes and I have had no time for any of it. I'm ready for some artsy fun, lazy swims and hopefully my little crazy's telling me they are bored! Yes, I look forward to that, because it's what they decide to do when they are bored that is so wonderful, they have a chance to let their imaginations run wild and their creativity take center stage!
This summer, in order to keep up with all our artistic adventures, I decided to add chores. I knew that when I was creating a chore chart the girls would be looking at it throughout the day and I wanted it to teach an artistic lesson in the process and so I created this...
Each chore and note is magnetic. Once the chore has been completed the girls can match it with it's corrected note. A, B, C, D ...ect. I am also able to swap out the chore magnets each day for different ones.
On the bass clef I have all of our morning chores that must be accomplished each day, pajamas in the laundry, get dressed, eat breakfast and brush teeth. They are on the bass clef because they are like the cords building a foundation to the music. On the treble clef are the chores that we swap out bringing a different melody to each day.
I've got only one board that keeps the magnets that they will use for the day along with a little cheat sheet as they learn where the notes belong. The other is used to store the magnets not used that day.
As they grow older and progress with their music reading I think I may create a board for learning the circle of fifths.
but I don't foresee that happening this summer....
