A performance of “The Secret Garden” runs through September 24 at Theatre 29 in Twentynine Palms. This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid! Besides the obvious “performing arts” subject you’d find here, you could also tie this whole month into the performance. History, Language Arts, Art, Science, Social Studies, you name it! Here are some links to a few great lists of things related to “The Secret Garden”. I didn’t even know there was a movie!
Of course, you’ll need to get the book somewhere! You can buy the book just about anywhere for under $5 and I highly suggest you have the book in your library instead of borrowing it. It’s one of those books you read over and over again!
Do you remember Scholastic Book Fairs at school when you were a kid? I looked forward to browsing through the books and picking my favorites. When my boys were little we went to their big warehouse sales in Anaheim and found loads of treasures.
Today when I was searching for ideas about how to experiment with topology, I came across Scholastic Printables! You can pay them by the month or by the year and print all you like. They have very nice printable pages to give your kids all kinds of ideas and inspiration in all subjects.
In fact, I’m pretty sure you could create enough lesson plans to cover most of the required subjects for the entire year from their Teacher Resource page!
