We decided to participate in the first Homeschool Movie Day on September 23rd and joined many homeschoolers across the nation to see Dolphin Tale.
I like to use movies as a rewarding ending to a topic of study we have done so I found some fun stuff online to teach my kids about dolphins and specifically about Winter, the dolphin the movie is based on. We used some of the curriculum on the Homeschool Movie Club’s website and some ideas that I found for a Dolphin Lapbook at Homeschool Share.
My kids enjoyed starting the year off learning about a fun animal and then joining others in seeing this great movie. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It will inspire you to do things you don’t think are possible and encourage you in learning new things WITH your children. Like I always say, not all education comes from books. Get out there and DO stuff with your kids and let them explore things they want to learn too.
