2012-2013 School Days & American Ways Calendar Now Available

Hey elementary educators! As summer draws to a close and you start preparing lesson plans for the new school year, consider incorporating stamps in your curriculum. Teaching with stamps can be a fun, interesting way for students to learn about our country and our culture. Each stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service is a miniature work of art depicting a particular moment in America’s history.

Our poster-sized calendars include monthly themes that correspond with curricula in history, geography, science, and language arts. Important dates and relevant postage stamp images are added throughout the months to help connect individual stamps to classroom subjects.

With our 28-page Teaching Guide, you can coordinate these monthly themes into well-rounded lesson plans. The guide includes ideas for interactive learning activities that will help engage your students, such as journaling, small group work, art projects, games, and class discussions.

Stamps make wonderful teaching tools that can help spark curiosity in young learners. You can order all of our instructional products by calling 1-800-STAMP-24.
