It’s mid-April and you homeschool mom’s know what that means:
I know you areÂ probably knee deep in your Springtime lessons; busy hatching butterflies, pressing wildflowers and dissecting frogs….but I also know you’re silently thinking and planning about what curriculum you will use next year!
Maybe you’re looking for a fun but educational way to keep your kiddos learning over the Summer break?
We’ll today we’re blessed to offer you a chance to relieve some of that burden with a fun giveaway!
Sallie Borrink Learning is offering one winner a $25 gift card to her online store…..and her store is FILLED with high quality teaching resources for pennies on the dollar.
I am seriously in LOVE with her Fun Fact Cards series, and even more in love with the price!
These cards are used multiple ways by teachers and parents in many grades.Â I love reading about all the different ways teachers and parents use them!
Quick Fun FactÂ â€“ Read the fact card each day and store them in a small basket where the students can look at them again and again. Or keep the set on a ring.
Fact of the Day Bulletin BoardÂ â€“ Read a fact each day and display the cards on a special bulletin board or foam board.
Hallway DisplayÂ â€“ One teacher displayed them on the hallway chalkboard outside her door so many students and adults could read them.
Calendar Pocket ChartÂ â€“ Put a fact behind each number on the calendar and have a different student take it out each day. You can then display on bulletin board.
Geography ExtensionÂ â€“ Put the cards on a wall map with a string that points to where it ties in.
Go FishÂ â€“ Create two sets and use for a game of Go Fish.
Memory GameÂ â€“ Create two sets and use for a Memory Game.
Scavenger HuntÂ â€“ Use the cards to create a Scavenger Hunt.
School Bulletin BoardÂ â€“ One kindergarten class had two students take the fact of the day down to the office each morning, â€œteachâ€ the fact to the office staff, and then display the cards on the office bulletin board for everyone in the school to see.
The cards are 3Ã—3 and there are 6 on a page.Â I made them small so they easily slide behind your date cards on the calendar pocket chart. They are also a good size for small hands if using them for a game. I also made them smaller to find the balance between making them colorful, but not taking too much ink when you print them.
The cards are unnumbered so they can be used in any month and in any sequence.Â You can use all the cards in the set or only a portion.Â This provides maximum flexibility for the teacherâ€™s schedule.Â Use one set all month or use parts of two sets depending on your needs.
Also included is a hyperlinked list of the relevant websites where the facts were located.
