A is for America (year 2, week 33)
This blog is an Amazon Associate.
In the last few weeks, we've looked at the state we live in and the planet/continent we live on, so this week we focused on the country! I hung up our US map this week and our theme cards, all of which gave us lots of things to talk about. We also focused a lot on patriotic songs and flag etiquette to help prepare the kids for life outside our schoolroom. The weather was great this week, so the kids played outside and with water most of every day. Surprisingly, we didn't do very much that was red, white, and blue.
Amazon. Dragonfly did very well with the counting. I liked how the game gave her practice recognizing numbers and counting one-to-one correspondence numbers.
US Monuments toob and our 3-part cards to learn about the different symbols of the United States. On several of the objects, we were able to look up at our US map and see a cartoon picture of the symbol in the state where it is found. Eventually, I'd love to have her/them place the symbols on the map themselves.
