If you’re a BrainPOP UK school subscriber, make sure to keep an eye out for a copy of our 2012 Spotlights Calendar arriving in the post shortly. The calendar features monthly spotlights which bring together hand-picked movies relating to a central theme.
As well as it being a beautiful piece of art (ahem!) we’ve packed it with helpful features to delight throughout the year, including:
- Use our Tip of the Month as inspiration for fun new ways to integrate BrainPOP into your day
- Keep an eye out for movie icons on specific dates throughout the year – those movies will be featured on that date
- Use the featured movies as a guide for planning lessons each month – we do our best to ensure they’re timely and topical
- Have your students add their birthdays and pick their favourite BrainPOP movie to watch that day
- Teacher’s Choice movies were selected as favourites by BrainPOP teachers from across the UK – why not add your favourite movies to the calendar?
We’ll be handing calendars out at BETT in January again and sending them out to all new BrainPOP school subscribers next year (while stocks last!)
If you’re not a school subscriber but are still keen to get a copy of our beautiful calendar, just email email@example.com with your request and we’ll see what we can do.
WHAT NEW SPOTLIGHTS DO WE HAVE COMING NEXT YEAR?
In March, delve into Britain’s past with the time travelling duo, Tim & Moby, and enjoy this collection of history resources: kings, queens, invasions, and war, with a little bit of black death thrown in for good measure.
Fancy a tune in April? Well, best take note of the animated movies in this music spotlight. Learn about composers and artists who have, in one way or another, shaped what you hear in the charts today.
If you’ve got a project or assignment coming up, this information literacy spotlight will be a good place to start! We gather together information on how to research, reference, prepare and get reading.
While you’re waiting for these thrillers to arrive, check out the resources available on our existing Spotlights. We’ll be updating them throughout the year with new movies and activities so it’s always worthwhile revisiting each month.
