ROCKIN' HISTORY has begun
E's decorating her binder with musical notes and instruments and we began our study of the first 5 songs from 1955 this morning. Rockin' History is underway!
What I do is I make her listen to the songs, I also print out a little history on the song and/or singer and also what was going on in the world at the time. Then we talk about the songs and review current tunes that you hear the influence of that time period in. Right now I think we will go in three year intervals. Every day I will add a little more history about 1955 to her reading and at the end of two weeks I will test her on all the information.
Here are the songs from 1955 that we are studying this week.
This is one of the things I love about home schooling.

A true classic from a guitar genius.
