Why You’ll Love Zeezok Music Appreciation for Elementary Students (with a giveaway!)
I have looked at the Zeezok Music Appreciation series from afar for many years but have never had the opportunity to see it up close or use it in our family. I was so excited last week to find out that the Zeezok company is offering a Music Appreciation Book 1 for the Elementary Grades (the whole set!) for a giveaway for Music in Our Homeschool readers. I’ll also be receiving a set which will be reviewed here at the site after I use it with my children in the next few weeks.
Here is what is included in the Zeezok Music Appreciation Book 1 for the Elementary Grades:
- 7 Biographies of Composers by Opal Wheeler (Bach, Handel, Mozart, Haydyn, Beethoven, Paganini, and Schubert)
- 5 CDs
- Activity Book
- CD-Rom with Lapbook materials
Activities are not Just Music Based:
I’ve only seen the samples of the activity book so far, but it looks like so much fun. There are activities for the following subjects that relate to the composer being studied:
- Character Qualities
The Music to Listen to is Included on the CDs:
I’m really looking forward to popping these into the car while we’re driving around town, as well as loading them on my phone so we can listen to them anywhere.
High Quality Professional Graphics and Layout in the Activity Book:
This activity book isn’t a typical “made-by-homeschooler” type of product. (Now, I’m not knocking those too much. I create those myself!) But I do love a professionally-produced product every now and then. And this is certainly one of those. Just check out the samples!

Lapbook Templates Included:
I have one child in particular who LOVES lapbooks, so she is really excited to do these. We plan to do the Schubert lapbook.
See examples of the other Lapbooks here.
