find plans at ThemeDay
The Cincinnati Enquirer
A former teacher found that her colleagues
were having trouble navigating Web sites for lesson plans.
The teachers felt intimidated. So Mary Zinn-Beiting, M.Ed.,
decided it was time to help teachers by making lesson plans
easier. In August 1999 she created themeday.com.
ThemeDay.com is a site for K-Grade 2
educators, home school teachers and parents to obtain lesson
plans related to a specific theme.
Each lesson plan has printable worksheets,
links to related sites, literature suggestions and detailed
lesson plans. The plans include specific subjects such as
language arts, social studies, math, science, art and
The site can be recommended for substitute
teachers who sometimes do not have specific lesson plans and
parents who want to spark creativity in their children.
Themeday.com is looking for corporate
sponsorship. Adopt a theme and help a child.
