I wanted to let you all know about a new feature at The Old SchoolhouseMagazine-- Schoolhouse Teachers.
You may have noticed that the new digital version of TOS Magazine is open access, meaning it is free to everyone now. There are even FREE apps available for iPhone, iTouch, iPad, Kindle Fire, and Droid.
In the past, when you subscribed to the magazine, one of the side benefits was
the Teacher's Toolbox. We enjoyed the Teacher's Toolbox, especially the freebie unit study each month, but we didn't really utilize it much more than that.
Things have flipped. While the magazine is free, the paid subscription service is now an updated version of the Teacher's Toolbox, called Schoolhouse Teachers.
But it's so much more than the old Teacher's Toolbox ever was.
One of the coolest features of Schoolhouse Teachers is that there are now real live teachers for several subjects who are providing lesson plans on a daily or monthly basis. You just log on and see what's there for the day or the month. It's easy peasy to use.
Here is a sampling of what you'll find for June's lesson plans:
Kim Kautzer (WriteShop) teaches descriptive writing with her lessons on Describing a Season.
Cathy Diez-Luckie (Figures in Motion) begins a summer study on dinosaurs and fossils with hands-on activities.
