From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Teacher's Calendar from some of our nation's best educators:

“A wonderful resource to supplement our required curriculum!”
--Melinda Day Webster, Tennessee Teacher of the Year, 2002

“I work with gifted and high-achieving fourth and fifth graders, and they actually use The Teacher’s Calendar more than I do! I leave it out with our reference materials for them to peruse when they are done with class assignments--I even put out the editions from previous years, since the information is different from year to year. The kids especially like the Internet links to find special facts about a given day of the year.”
--Tracy Callard, Kansas Teacher of the Year, 2002

"I see this as an absolutely necessary tool no matter what your subject area or grade level. The information contained in the index alone is worth the price of this book!"
--Alexis Ludewig, Wisconsin Teacher of the Year, 2002

"This book is phenomenal! As a primary teacher I struggle to find appropriate material to nudge my students' understanding of the passing of time, history, and geography. This resource is the perfect springboard to help me tackle these tough concepts."
--Barb Stoflet, Minnesota Teacher of the Year, 2002

The 2005–2006 edition of this indispensable calendar for teachers grades K-8 has hundreds of new entries, including:

  • More amazing milestones and facts, such as: first animal to receive artificial eyes, the day a giant squid battled humans, first private manned spaceflight and more!
  • New unique holidays, including National Underwear Day (August 16), Walk on Stilts Day (July 27), No Name-Calling Week (January 16-20) and Appreciate a Dragon Day (January 16)
  • More celebrity birthdays, including Michael Phelps, Carly Patterson and other heroes from the 2004 Summer Olympics
  • Up-to-date information on Sen. Barack Obama, Gov. Christine Gregoire and other new U.S. senatorial and gubernatorial officeholders
  • Historic anniversaries such as the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s arrival at the Pacific Ocean or the 50th anniversary of Rosa Parks’s civil disobedience and the Montgomery Bus Boycott

And, as usual, The Teacher's Calendar has 50 "Curriculum Connections" to spur classroom discussion and 5,000 holidays, events, astronomical data and more, completely updated for the school year 2005–2006!
