Here is Owen playing Ode to Joy with the right hand.
Lily learned Ode to Joy and Joy to the World with Soft Mozart (and a few other beginning songs like jingle bells, hot cross buns, etc.) Note: we chose to play chords with Ode to joy rather than individual notes on the left hand.
I have also learned these songs as well, however I have not video taped myself playing them.
The stickers are simply office supply dots colored in with marker. In this picture they have a strip of shiny scotch tape over the length of them but after a while I found it was not necessary. They are easier to remove without being "laminated" by tape. It was simpler for me to just replace them occasionally until, like training wheels, they could be removed entirely.
Thank you for the kind remarks. In these videos, Owen was almost 3, and Lily had just turned 4. We have been using SM since January 2012 officially when the majority of BK parents became involved, but we began using it with a much more concentrated effort around May/June 2012.
Yay TMT is hear! Welcome Tonya. I can't wait to read your diary! I know just how creative you are in educating your children I love seeing your pictures and thinking " will I get that one past hubby?" usually I just put them all up when he isn't home
Glad to have you here
