Do you like to add some variety to your homeschool or after schooling program? Consider CurrClick’s Teachable Moments calendar.
Each month, if you are a CurrClick subscriber, you receive a Teachable Moments calendar from CurrClick in your inbox the last week of the previous month. It’s great because it helps you see some fun things coming up in the next month as well as famous birthday, historical moments, and fun extras. Each month they also provide links in the calendar to fun products they have that coincide with the calendar moments.
We don’t use all the Teachable Moments, though I know some parents that homeschool according to a “this day in history” format, so this would be good for that. However, we do like to know what happened on this day in history and celebrate a few interesting extras each month.
So what does August bring us? It brings us Astronaut Neil Armstrong’s birthday, National Public Speaking Day, International Geocaching Day, the release of Mary Poppins in 1964, Dr. Kings “I Have a Dream Speech,” Mother Theresa’s birthday and, my personal favorite, National Exercise with your Kids Day.
You can sign up to receive your Teachable Moments from CurrClick here.
Here is an example of a previous Teachable Moments calendar available for free on CurrClick to give you an example. August 2012 looks better, with more links. I just couldn’t share it since it’s for subscribers only. Go subscribe and take a look.
