About Acorn Circle Co.
Thank you for visiting the Acorn Circle website. For over 20 years, the company has offered a number of in-classroom educational programs to schools in the NYS Capital Region. With the current Covid-19 situation, the programs are now offered virtually through Google Meet.
Acorn Circle Co. was formed in 1997 to assist educators in addressing the NYS Learning Standards. About 20 different in-classroom programs have been developed over the years using primary and secondary sources. The sources for the programs are from historians, archaeologists, anthropologists and geographers. These scholars and scientists provide a diverse perspective to the social studies programs. These different approaches have been integrated in both the in-classroom and, now, virtual programs.
Many of educational presentations integrate geography, math, science and technology with social studies. The objective in each program is help the students to think about the importance of history in their lives. Over 20,000 students have seen the various in-classroom programs over the years.
Over the last couple years, Acorn Circle Co. has expanded to offer student reader booklets on New York State history. There are questions throughout each reader to help students with reading comprehension. The purpose is to offer the same social studies information to students as the in-classroom programs.The student reader booklets address the same NYS Learning Standards and Themes as the in-classroom presentations.
Please feel free to contact me, if you are interested in any of the student reader booklets or virtual educational programs.
