Time-strapped teachers will find engaging and unique lesson plans, worksheets and crafts for the New Year with today's launch of the 2012 Educators' Calendar on TeacherVision.com. Designed to meet the needs of all educators, the teacher calendar is available online, as a printable PDF, or as a free widget for featuring on a blog or Facebook page. The 2012 Educators' Calendar features a noteworthy daily event that teachers can use to spark student research, engage interest or stimulate creativity. Each event links to different activities that are relevant to the particular day, week or month.
"Over the past seven years, teachers of all grades and subjects have come to rely on TeacherVision's Educators' Calendar as a great reference and organizational tool," said Jess M. Brallier, publisher, TeacherVision. "We developed this online resource – jam-packed with instructional materials – to support the thousands of dedicated K-12 teachers in classrooms around the country."
The calendar’s teacher resources can be used to develop an in-depth unit for studying events such as Black History Month (February) or National Poetry Month (April). The calendar also features celebrations such as Children's Book Week (May 7-13) and Constitution Week (September 17-23).
The 2012 Educators' Calendar includes activities highlighting the birthdays of famous current and historical figures, including political leaders such as George Washington (February 22), our country's first president, and retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (March 26). Creative individuals, such as children's book author and illustrator Eric Carle (June 25) and acclaimed artist Pablo Picasso (October 25) are also featured.
