Today's Fresh Look Fridays post is going to be short and sweet, but it does mark a new milestone for me: this is the FIRST website recommendation that I've listed as a direct result of Pinterest.
I probably don't need to ramble on about how much I LOVE Pinterest, but when I have 10 minutes to waste I can easily spend 45 minutes on that stupid addictive site. So far, I've kept it fairly linked to areas I'm interested in in my personal life -- stuff for toddlers, cooking, etc. -- but I've started to follow some people with some excellent classroom technology boards.
What I like about today's website is the simplicity of it. In the past, I've reviewed some online interactive keyboards, but I find this one might be more appropriate for young elementary students that prefer a cute visual.
As you can see, there are 7 birds, representing the 7 notes (obviously no flats or sharps). There is a free play option, where kids can press the birds and hear the "laaaa" that comes out of each bird, either creating their own tune or trying to replicate a simplistic tune they know. The other option is to follow the arrow and play 3 Blind Mice.
So cute, and so easy to put a small group to work on this at your SMART Board for some music creation.
