New Calendar Helps You Use Stamps to Teach

2013 School DaysTeachers and parents! The School Days & American Ways curriculum-connected calendar is ready to grace the wall of your classroom or home! Stamps are excellent primary resources for teaching about our country and our culture. This calendar helps you use stamps to teach American history every day of the week. You can also dive in-depth on monthly themes like the Constitution, Native Americans, poetry, and more.

Every day of the year is fully illustrated with one (or more) relevant commemorative stamps. And the calendar even comes with a 28-page Teaching Guide with coordinated lesson plans
for each monthly theme:
  • Cross curricular learning activities include small group work, research activities, journaling, art projects, games, and spirited class discussions.
  • A summary of objectives follows each lesson plan, along with a list of curriculum standards addressed by each activity.
