Dolphin Tale opens in theaters September 23. Not only is this movie family friendly, it's also homeschool friendly! So much so that Homeschool Movie Club is organizing a Homeschool Movie Day!
Not only am I excited about the movie (Hello? Harry Connick, Jr. is in it! *wink* I love you Sound Man! hee hee), but Homeschool Movie Club also has curriculum to go with the movie! Written by marine biologist Sherri Seligson, Apologia's Marine Biology curriculum author, this curriculum takes you through five lessons that are about ocean wildlife, not just dolphins. Seeing as how Kiddo wants to be a marine biologist, this is right up our alley. Can you see why I'm giddy?
I was already excited, but then when I read Sally Clarkson's glowing endorsement of the movie (not that having her son, Nathan, as a consultant on the movie had anything to do with that...hee hee), I did a happy dance! To help spread the word, Sally is giving away four Dolphin Tale Fun Packs!
Head over to her post to read more about the giveaway, and please go to Homeschool Movie Club and become a member. It's free! Plus, you'll get info on this movie as well as the others they endorse. You can sign up for their newsletter, as well as like them on Facebook for updates about the Homeschool Movie Day.
I can't WAIT for September 23rd! I hope our homeschool group will catch the excitement and support this movie on opening day. That's Sally's wish as well, as you'll read in her post. We want to send a message to Hollywood that we as Christians DO have a voice!
It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a movie premiere! I just counted and I say a form of the word "excited" six times in this post. Maybe I need to cut back on the caffeine.
