I was just going through my e-mail and found this from Homeschool Freebie of the Day. Since the freebies are available all weekend I thought I would make sure all my readers knew about it. The Freebies are only available through Sunday Night... so get them soon!!! Go! Go! Go!
Here is the e-mail I got:
Homeschool Freebie of the Day sorta got carried away with today's resources, and actually ended up with FOUR wonderful resources all related to Revere and the history surrounding his
midnight ride. Here's the complete rundown:
Listen My Children (MP3 audio) -
FIRST UP up this a great half hour audio story about Revere's long life and influence, including the events of that fateful night, as originally dramatized on the radio program "Cavalcade of America", in December, 1952.
"Listen My Children" Listening Guide (PDF ebooklet) -
Next, you'll want to use this PDF discussion guide with background info and questions to accompany the above audio program.
Paul Revere's Ride (MP3 audio) -
Next, we have a SECOND classic audio for you: A wonderful dramatic performance of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's classic poem, "Paul Revere's Ride" as performed by Frederic March. If your kids have never heard it, they are missing out on one of the quintessential American poems. Give it a listen!
And FINALLY, we also have a neat PDF art study lesson focusing on paintings & sculptures depicting Paul Revere (as well as the Minutemen), courtesy of Yes You Can! Publications.
This is lots of fun and a great way to combine history with art appreciation & hands-on activities to boot.
Again, ALL of these resources will be featured on our site Friday and through the entire weekend.
So, we're sitting here thinking "Wow. This is a really nice package"... and "This would be a great resource to introduce some first-time visitors to our site -- IF we can round some up."
So... we thought we'd just ask YOU, our faithful readers & supporters, for a little favor on Friday morning.
Could you please take a moment tomorrow to get the word out to other homeschoolers about this package of resources that we have available through this weekend?
Just an email note to your homeschooling friends or local support group... a post on your blog... a "tweet" or a "digg"... or WHATEVER networking thing you you can do to help spread the word would be greatly appreciated.
Just send 'em to Homeschool Freebie of the Day
-- They will thank you, and we will too.
Remember the Freebies are only available through Sunday Night!!
As always, we truly appreciate your being with us, and hope you are enjoying and will continue to enjoy the resources we make available here.
Thanks, and have a super weekend!
