Here’s a fun site I just discovered for those of you with lower elementary age students… Mighty Books.com offers animated books for early readers with a variety of themes. Visit the page titled, “Art & Music” for slide shows of paintings by Van Gogh, Renoir or Remington set to the music of great composers, or assemble a virtual jigsaw puzzle made from the “Carnival of Harlequin” by Joan Miro. Follow along as you listen to a story that accompanies the paintings of Jan Vermeer. Then, check out “Go to the Museum” for a virtual field trip of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. You can also learn about the artists and art movements here, too. For access to the entire site, you will need to purchase a membership for 24.99/year, but all that I’ve told you about is available for free! So, where was all of this when my kids were little??!
