Benefits of using Post from the Past
Post from the Past offers a unique, fun way to learn about history engagingly. Founded by a homeschool mom, Caroline understands that learning should never be boring; instead, it should be an insightful and enjoyable experience. With passionate storytelling and educational facts, Post from the Past allows readers to expand their knowledge of the past while inspiring them to impact their present positively.
How we’ve been using Post from the Past
Post from the Past has been a great asset to our family in terms of unique experiences and education. As a former history teacher and lover of snail mail, I decided to try Post from the Past’s letter subscription about historical figures.
Every month, we look forward to receiving an envelope from the UK. We open the letter and read the contents, and then I look online for the FREE printables available on the website to help us deepen our learning.
Sometimes we will seek additional information such as documentaries, books, and more related to the letter we received.
Afterward, I keep the letters in a binder for future reference when we see the historical figure in our regular studies.
I loved this subscription so much that I went ahead and purchased the Whole Shop Collection after receiving our first couple of letters so we could have ALL the letters we missed.
To this day, we still get excited opening envelopes filled with truly fascinating content about historical figures.
Through Post from the Past, I have engaged my kids in meaningful discussions about the history and its impact on the present day. This has helped them become more aware of their world and understand how we are connected through our shared histories. Using Post from the Past in our homeschool, we’ve created a learning environment that encourages students to explore beyond textbooks and uncover new knowledge.
