Super Geography and State Recognition course Jul 17, 2008
Ever want to press the "easy" button in your homeschool? This workbook accompanied with the statebook is your answer. The great thing about it is that it comes with a reproducible cd-rom, so you have pages for each child.
It is a 4-day approach, so you get one day off each week. For example, Lesson 2.1 teaches about Arkansas, Lesson 2.2 teaches about California, Lesson 2.3 teaches about Colorado, and Lesson 2.4 is a review and simple quiz about these 3 states. So you are learning 3 new states per week. OR, you can just go at your own pace, which we often did.
I would print out each week's lessons, and my kids (grades 1, 3, and 6) would work on them pretty independently for a good 20 minutes. (Answers to quizzes are in back.) They would get excited and start reading the state facts to each other and helping each other answer questions.
My kids each had their own 3-ring binder to 3-hole punch their lessons each day and insert into the binder. Then when studying for a quiz, they could study and quiz each other from their filed sheets.
I recommend the two books together. Very teacher-friendly. If we needed more info. on a state, it gave them an incentive to look it up and read more.
Star Spangled WorkBook gets 5 STARS Jul 16, 2008
I've searched high & low for a book that "clicked" for my daughter. The simple, well organized format and colorful text got her attention. The precise facts were short & sweet enough for her to remember without long angonizing hours of study. The information encouraged further exploration via library books and internet searches. The word scrambles, game & quizes provided a spiral review which resulted in an A+ final exam. Great for elementary students!
Star-Spangled Workbook Jul 15, 2008
I recently received my copy of the Star-Spangled Workbook and Star-Spangled State Book. I purchased these books for my children aged 8, 6 and 4 for a study about the 50 states. I am VERY excited to begin our journey! These books are a great way for the kids to learn and retain facts about each of the states. My older kids will be able to utilize the workbook -- but I know the 4 year old will listen and learn as well. These are well put together, colorful and chocked full of fun facts. There is a built in review called the Geoquiz which will help the kids retain capitals, shape of the states, neighboring states and trivia about each state. I am very pleased with my purchase:)
