This month Jennifer Holden has created some great unit studies using the backdrop of fairy tales.
For February’s Ditch the Desk unit, Heather Hayes shows us how to enjoy Meaningful Music. We’ll learn about composers, instruments, and music careers plus enjoy listening to music and taking a fun field trip. Activities are easily scaled for elementary and middle school grades. Join us for Meaningful Music while we Ditch the Desk!
We have exciting news! Ditch the Desk is back with two very special Christmas-themed units from two of our newest Star Contributors. Look for more from Heather Hayes and Jenn Holden in the months ahead.
Much of our Schoolhouse Dailies content is produced in a team environment by our Schoolhouse Contributors. While a few Schoolhouse Contributors develop their curriculum independently, many work in an on-line team environment to create much of the material you see on our Dailies tab. We would be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and would love to consider your work. For information on joining our group of Schoolhouse Contributors, contact Schoolhouse Dailies Editor Julie Coney email@example.com.
