Kids and Morse Code and Radios

The 9, 7, and 5 year-old gang and I are going to build RockMite radios as one of our stuck in the house pandemic things. One of the hitches though is that RockMites only transmit and receive on the Morse code portions of the ham radio bands.  We found a nice set of Morse code sounds on the ARRL page, but clicking each letter opens an mp3 player. It's not exactly as easy to use as we'd hoped.

A little html later though, we've made own practice page that anyone can use.  Each letter, number, and symbol is displayed in a table. Click on the one you're interested in to hear the sound for that character, number or symbol.  Any suggestions for what we should try next? I'm thinking something using the code practice sessions the ARRL has linked on the same site. What do you think?
Scroll down for the practice table. Have fun! Also, if you'd like to contribute, here's our work on github.
