May 12 – Florence Nightingale Day

Today is the 200th Birthday of Florence Nightingale. She is the pioneer of nursing as we know it today. As we navigate through a worldwide pandemic it is fitting we honor this Historic woman, and every nurse that has followed in her footsteps since. May 12th is International Nurses day.

When Florence went into nursing it was considered dirty work. Respectable women just didn’t do it. Medicine wasn’t practiced the way it is now. Florence is famous for inspiring the simple act of hand washing ! In her book Notes on Nursing written in 1860, Florence tells nurses they should wash their hands as often as possible, their faces too! At the time it was believed infection was caused by bad smells!

The hand washing and other hygiene principals Florence and her team implemented in British army hospitals during the Crimean War were responsible for marked improvements in recovery. Believe it or not it wasn’t until the 1980s that hand hygiene is recognized globally as a critical component to preventing infection.

You can learn more about Florence no matter the age of your learners with books:

If you would like to * take a walk in the life of Florence Nightingale* – I have just the thing for you! This product designed to honor the life of Florence Nightingale, contains a QR code to hear “Florence” tell all about her life or you can read the informational text yourself.

May 6 – Tourist Appreciation Day

Tourism ( all activity related to people traveling outside of where they normally live) is a billion dollar industry – and it relies on the TOURIST!

A tourist is defined as any person traveling away from what is considered their usual social environment for the purpose of conducting business, social reasons (like a wedding or family reunion) or for pleasure. In order to be classified as a tourist, a person must stay at the location for longer than 24 hours and less than one year.

Anytime you and your family have traveled and met these conditions – you were a tourist! Perhaps you have fantastic destinations in your city that attract visitors. Those visitors are tourists too! They are “touring” the city that YOU live in, just as you tour the places you visit.

Some ways you can celebrate Tourist Appreciation Day are:

Plan your dream trip – research cost, places to visit while there, etc. Present the idea to your parents for fun.

Re-visit a place you have already been by creating a photo album of the trip. Preserve the memories with a bit of writing to describe the pictures.

“Tour” somewhere new in your local area – even though it doesn’t qualify as being a true tourist, it’s always a good opportunity to see something new! Create a Travel Brochure (I have a FREE printable for you to use!) of the place you visited!

Take a Virtual Trip to the most popular tourist destination – France. Use the links in the FREE PACKET I put together for today! It is a sample of the full WORLD TRAVELER set available in my curriculum line!

The World Traveler Activity Pack contains 13 additional countries (14 total including France), the Travel Brochure, a Passport, passport stamps and an adorable Suitcase mini book!

Visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store to purchase Complete Activity Pack.

The day is celebrated in community gatherings, social media events and even partnerships with stores that hold special sales.

May 1 – Mother Goose Day

So knock me over with a feather, a goose feather. I was *Today Years Old* when I discovered that Mother Goose was an imaginary author who published a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. I had always thought Mother Goose was a pen name, like Dr. Seuss. Learn something every day!

The first authenticated starting point for “Mother Goose” is said to be a collection of fairy tales published in 1695. This also marks the beginning of the fairy tale genre of literature.

Mother Goose day began in 1987 when the book: Mother Goose; From Nursery to Literature by Gloria T. Delamar was published. This book looks at the history of nursery rhymes as well as the history in nursery rhymes. (This book is aimed at an adult audience)

There are many different references to Mother Goose over the years, and it’s hard to tell who exactly She (or he) is.What seems to be agreed upon is that the rhymes come from MANY sources and are handed down from generation to generation.

Fingerplays are commonly used with nursery rhymes. A Fingerplay is a short poem or rhyme that is acted out with the fingers. (Think “This little Piggy”, or Itsy, Bitsy, Spider. ) Fingerplays are engaging and capture the learners attention. They promote vocabulary, and listening skills all while a young learner is using their imagination and creativity. Fingerplays also help strengthen motor skills and autonomy (desire to do it yourself) in young learners.

If you are looking for ideas to use fingerplays beyond the basics, here are some excellent choices. I especially like the Bible fingerplays.

Homeschool Holiday developed a set of printables designed for creative play in the spirit of finger plays. The adorable designs can be printed in color or black and white (So your learner can color their own). There are finger puppets and craft stick puppets as well as paper tube puppets. Your learners can:

Re- tell the story from the Nursery Rhyme in the learners own words, using the puppets as visual clues.

Engage in free choice story telling by mixing and matching the puppets. (I can only imagine what would happen when Jack and Jill meet Little Miss Muffet!)

Have your learner tell what came first, next, last by holding up the puppets in order.

I also have blank templates for each style to make your own Fairy Tale or Nursery Rhyme!

Click Picture to Purchase on Teachers Pay Teachers

To get you started her is a set of Story Sticks for Mary Had a Little Lamb. This set is only available for download from the blog and is NOT included in the Creative Play Curriculum!


Think Nursery Rhymes are only for the very youngest of learners? Think again! Learners in the Elementary grades can write their own Nursery Rhymes. Or how about a continuation of a popular rhyme. What happens after Jack and Jill tumble down that hill? Depending on the age of your learner, a well developed story can be written! I like to call this – and then what happened….

They can also act out the nursery rhyme (Their own original or a tried and true version, or the continuation!) and film it!

If you need a Mother Goose Book for your collection, or know someone who just had a baby – they always make a great gift!

April 28 – National Super Hero Day

Wonder Woman Clip Art by Melonheadz Illustrating

In 1995 a group of employees at Marvel Comics created Super Hero day. They asked people what they thought about super heroes and what super power they would like to have.

In our home that is a conversation we have had many, many times… What super power would you like to have? There were times I wanted super-paper-grading powers when I was a classroom teacher and I was so far behind I thought I would never catch up. Or how about Super Laundry folding powers? Or cooking powers? My son informs me those aren’t what the question means, and those powers are selfish because they only help me, not mankind… Sigh! I thought I was onto something! …Super Blogging powers! How about that one?

According to the website National Today . Com , the first ever publication containing a superhero was in 1935. The hero’s name was Phantom. Since then there have been many, many super hero characters to follow.

Superheroes don’t only appear in comics and movies. We also encounter Super Heroes every day! I bet you could name a few! There are no limits to the type of Hero you honor today.

To celebrate today the list of activities is only as limited as your imagination:

Create your own Super Hero – draw or tell all about their powers, back story, etc.

Honor the heroes in real life, perhaps a teacher, doctor, nurse, firefighter, police officer, the mayor, priest or minister! Anyone who goes above and beyond. Mom and Dad are often heroes! (Remember those super laundry powers! and Dads can fix most anything!) Make them a card, write a note, draw a picture – tell the person what makes them a Super Hero!

Watch your favorite super hero movie for fun, or complete this FREE movie guide:

You can also Dress the part of Super hero with our FANTASTIC DIY mask and wrist cuff printable as part of Today’s GREAT Freebie! It also contains Printable templates for creating your own comic books.

As a SPECIAL BONUS for you – my Happy Hive Super heroes! I have a BLOG READER EXCLUSIVE FREEBIE! That’s right! If you would like to receive the About Me Super Hero Worksheet Just hit the button below!

April 27 – Morse Code Day

Today we celebrate the birthday of Samuel Morse. He was born today – April 27, 1791!

Samuel Morse is credited with inventing Morse Code (of course!) and he is also often associated with the invention of the Telegraph. It’s had to pinpoint exactly who the “FIRST” is with any invention. Someone has almost certanly thought up part of it before. Combigning ideas makes for a great invention. It’s no different with the Telegraph. Without a doubt, Morse laid down the first line of electric telegraph from Washington to Baltimore.

Did you Write your Name in Morse Code with us on January 11th? If so you already have some practice with Morse Code! That’s actually why there are 2 days to celebrate. January 11th marks the Anniversary of the first public demonstration of the electric telegraph. The Inventors of this holiday thought it would be a great way to introduce Morse Code in a fun, easy way.

April 27 as was mentioned earlier is the Birthday of Samuel Morse, and that is why we celebrate Morse Code again today.

Did you know, When Samuel Morse originally invented Morse Code in the 1830’s for use in telegraphy, it only represented numbers! The Alphabet was added rather quickly, but that also created some issues. It was quickly determined that changes were needed, as Morse Code was unable to deal with many of the characters in other languages. This led to the creation of International Morse Code in 1851. We still use this Code today.

Morse Code is actually quite versatile. Just tap your pencil on the table in front of you and you can send a signal! You can even use 2 flashlights to send signals in the dark if the electricity goes out.

Morse Code was used extensively during World War II, in the Vietnam and Korean wars, and remained the standard format for ocean communication until it was replaced in 1999 by the Global Maritime Distress Safety System.

Morse Code is still used today, however it’s use is not widespread at all. Many amateur radio enthusiasts learn Morse Code, although it is not required. It is used the most in the fields of Aviation and Aeronautics due to the fact their radio navigational aids still identify Morse Code. The US Navy and Coast Guard still use signal lamps to communicate via Morse Code.

Morse Code is also used by people in whom their communication abilities are impaired by stroke, heart attack or even paralysis. Individuals can use their eye lids for example to blink in dots and dashes.

Visit the Natural History Museum to see what is believed to be an telegraph key from the original Baltimore-Washington Telegraph line: https://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/search/object/nmah_1096762

If you search the museum you will fall down a rabbit hole of fantastic images related to Samuel Morse and the Telegraph!

If you would like some easy activities for today you can use the Morse Code printables from Our Curriculum Club!

April 23 – Talk like Shakespeare Day

Today we celebrate the birthday of The English poet and playwright William Shakespeare. He was born April 23, 1864.

Today is a day fine reader that we must embrace like no other, for today doth shine brighter than that of the sun! Step out of thy comfort zone and into thee limelight, for all the world is a stage!

For many English speakers, Shakespeare is credited with what we have come to consider common phrases. For Example, the one used above: All the world is a stage – this comes from his play – As You Like it, Act 2 Scene 7.

A few others I bet you would recognize:

All that glitters is not gold (The Merchant of Venice)

For goodness’ sake (Henry VIII)

It smells to heaven (sometimes said, smells to high heaven) (Hamlet)

Kill with kindness (Taming of the Shrew)

Many of these common phrases are considered idioms. One of my FAVORITE subjects to teach! I absolutely love figurative language!

I created an easy to use power point with 6 common idioms from Shakespeare that learners can illustrate. There is an easy to understand definition of idiom. Each sample is used in a sentence to increase understanding.

Click picture to purchase

If ‘t be true thee just wanteth to has’t some excit’ment, tryeth this online English to Shakespeare translat’r!

https://lingojam.com/EnglishtoShakespearean

Simply type in your sentence, and it “translates” it to Old English style.

As mine own gift to thee this fine day, prithee download this wond’rful copyw’rk!

April 21 – Big Word Day

A voracious reader is bound to have a capacious vocabulary, but they might not be adept in spelling.

Today we celebrate the “BIG WORDS” – the synonyms that provide so much more descriptive meanings, yet we may not know how to say them!

Here at Homeschool Holiday, we believe there is always something to celebrate, and by celebrate – we mean learn! Attitude is everything, and with a positive attitude, you can accomplish so much in life. No matter where you are in your learning phase, there is always MORE to learn.

According to the website: DAILY WRITING TIPS . Com there are 171,476 words in the Oxford Dictionary. How would you like to carry that around! (you don’t have to, you can actually Rent it from Amazon – say, if you are a college student!) Those are only words we CURRENTLY use. There are also over 47,000 words considered obsolete and 9,500 words in that same dictionary as sub-entries. Holy-that’s-A-Lot-Of-Words-Batman!

For beginners, this 1,000 word dictionary is a great place to start:

Many Homeschoolers, my family included, consider the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary a classic, must have book.

Purchase the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary on Amazon

The 1828 dictionary is a coveted reference tool when studying the great works of our founding fathers, and the founding documents of the United States. The definitions of the words align with their use at the time they were written to increase clarity and understanding. Mr. Webster based his work on the King James Bible, therefore the words and their moral values are reflected of 19th century definitions.

If you are looking for an activity to challenge your “Big Word” making skills now is a GREAT time to begin a WORD OF THE DAY activity. If doing a Word of the day is too much, you can use a Word of the WEEK. 200 words will last you quite some time!

For this activity, learners use a dictionary, or online dictionary to identify the part of speech, synonyms, antonyms and definition for the word. The worksheet then asks them to define the word in their “own words” and to write a sentence. Finally there is room for a picture. Some of these items can be challenging, depending on the word. Guidance from a mentor is recommended. The words are suitable for learners in grades 3-6. You can easily use any words from your own curriculum with the worksheets year after year!

Scrabble is another great way for Learners to practice their vocabulary skills, and we just celebrated Scrabble Day on April 13th! You can use these easy Scrabble – like games for multiple ages without going full blown Scrabble, lol.

We hope you will consider a coadunation (ha ha – notice our BIG WORD!) with us by becoming members of the Curriculum club – Its FREE! You get an Exclusive Freebie each month, previews of upcoming holidays and coordinating products, coupons and MORE! Just click the image below to sign up!

April 19 – Patriot’s Day

Patriot’s Day is to remember the Battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19th 1775. These historic events were the cornerstones to the American Revolutionary War.

Much lead up to this fateful day between the colonies and Mother England, but these Battles mark the official beginning, and seal the fate of the United States becoming it’s own country.

The night of April 18th is when Paul Revere, William Dawes and Samuel Prescott made there famous ride to warn the Patriots of the British Troops arrival. Mr. Revere would not have shouted: “The British are coming!” Instead he would have the other Patriots of Boston’s Middlesex County know that the “Regulars are coming”.

You see, the soldiers in the British army were called Regulars, it was the “regular army” and had nothing to do with being British or not.

But alas, Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride is forever remembered mainly by it’s documentation through the famous poet: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Have a learner who prefers the style of Graphic Novels: This is a good choice: And you MUST add this to your collection if you don’t have it:

We know, basically how it ends… The Revolutionary war continues until September 3, 1783 and the United States is in fact it’s own country.

If you are looking for a quick lesson to introduce the day – the Timeline is Excellent! You can play a matching game with the text and the picture cards, or create a timeline to hang on the wall.

Click the picture to visit Teachers Pay Teachers and Purchase

Taking the timeline and putting it int a Power Point presentation as well as a Google Slide Presentation makes this set perfect for the classroom or co-op. It’s also great for independent or older learners who want to explore the topic on their own. The set comes with handouts and learners fill in the blanks with the missing information as the presentation advances to reveal the answers.

Click the picture to visit Teachers Pay Teachers and Purchase

I can’t let the day go by without reminding you of the School House Rock video – Shot heard round the world… is there any better curriculum than this? Actually there is, as the facts are sketchy, but it’s still a classic! – Enjoy!

April 17 – National Haiku Poetry Day

Haiku poetry is a form of Japanese poetry that is often taught in school. You may have been taught to write this poetry using 5 syllables for the first line, 7 syllables for the second line and 5 syllables for the third and final line. This is perfectly acceptable, however it’s not necessarily the traditional way.

The reason for this is that English syllables and Japanese syllables do not work in the exact same way. In English we are dealing with part of a word that contains a single vowel sound and is pronounced as a unit. In the Japanese language, a “syllable” is simply a chunk of sound. Unless you speak Japanese – You’re going to write your Haiku the English way, so don’t worry too much about it. It’s just a great thing to know the TRUTH about Haiku.

One of the traditions of Japanese Haiku you can include in your English Haiku is to make your poem about nature.

To help you On National Haiku Day I have these FREE files from my Poetry Made Easy Product!

If you would like a larger poetry curriculum the power point and worksheet set are available!

The poetry styles included are:

ACROSTIC

NAME POEM

DIAMONTE

HAIKU

SENSE POEM

CINQUAIN

CLERIHEW

There are instructions for writing each style at least one sample poem and printable templates for learners to use to write their poems.

You can preview the printable worksheets below.

no matter your choice / we are so glad you appear/ to learn something new!
