Dave Stotts has become a household name around here. I mean, this guys rocks!! He is hilarious and so fun to watch. He makes history exciting and that is a hard feat to take on. He is also super relatable. Just the other day, London was watching on his phone and yells out, “Hey Mom, Dave’s family has the flu!!’ We both were super sad about this. Then he informs me that Dave has a wife and 4 kid and he doesn’t know why anyone would want 4 kids. Haha! I like that Dave talks about his family and his life in his videos. He is more than just a guy behind the screen.
A couple of weeks ago, Dave sent my boys some awesome goodies in the mail. He sent them each a Drive Thru History Adventures patch, a sticker and a personally signed post card. I mean…who does that?? We didn’t have to pay for these things, he just sent them. London and Carter were over the moon. They were both so happy and planned immediately where they were going to put all of their things. This was such a nice gesture from Dave. I posted a picture of them with their goodies on the company Facebook and within hours he had commented on it. It’s like Dave Stotts is our new best friend. Some days, London will often give me some random fact and follow up with, “That’s what Dave Stotts said.” I couldn’t ask more from a curriculum than my child offering up unsolicited info throughout the day. I definitely know he is learning.
My final thoughts about Drive Thru History Adventures is: YES, YES, and YES!! It really is such an awesome curriculum. I wish all the subjects I teach had a program this awesome. Dave is the best, the videos are so interesting and captivating and the additional resources just really tie this curriculum up with a pretty little bow.
