Our Experience with Smart Kidz Radio: Member’s On Demand Radio Program Libray
My boys love music! Therefore, they were super excited to try out some of the radio programs on Smart Kidz Radio with me. After exploring the dashboard and seeing all the options available, we got the most excited about the Nostalgic Music Programs. These include programs about 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s music. These teach and demonstrate the change in music throughout modern American history. It was fun to have these programs playing as we worked on other schoolwork, or had lunch. My kids enjoyed the music and enjoyed laughing at some of the older songs they had never heard. We had fun and enjoyed learning about some of the history of modern music.
I loved having easy access to music from countries and cultures around the world. It is wonderful to easily be able to add a representation of music from around the world. Also to teach our kids about other countries through music. The tribute to World music program was wonderful and fun to listen to a lot of different cultural music at once. However, we also enjoyed the programs on individual countries in the World Cultural Music Category. The American Heritage Music Program is a great resource for our American History Study we are doing right now.
My kids and I also enjoyed the many different inspirational kids songs and programs available. They had so many older Christian kids songs from my childhood that were fun to let my kids learn. This also could be a great resource for Sunday School and some of kids programs at church! My youngest (5) has enjoyed a few of the story programs with classic fairy tales! It is a great program to let him listen and explore different songs and programs without worry!
We are Excited to Continue Learning with Smart Kidz Radio
There are so many great music programs on Smart Kidz Radio. I am excited to continue to explore more of the music available in their on demand Library and use it to add to my children’s education! I am excited to use the classical composers and music history programs in the future with a music history unit!
