Here the kids are working on the continents. Sweet Boy can read the labels and I read the labels for Bella. This should have a control chart so Bella can do this on her own BUT I have not made one and I actually think it is beneficial for me to sit with her and tell her the names and get to have a conversation about the continents. Like "North America". She would say "Oh, yes, that is where we live!". "Bella, show me South America". "Who do you know from your class that is from South America?" "What continent are you studying in your class right now?". etc.....
I do plan to create a control chart for all of the maps. It is on my to do list!!
Also on my to do list for Geography:
- Felt Continent Map with miniature animals!! Like Leptirs. Hers is so great!
- Flag Pin Maps.
Check out this beautiful blog with lots of Montessori Homemade works. Wise Little Owls Homeschool. Here is Sarahs homemade Flags Pin Map. I am excited to have found this blog because she has elementary school age children and she has great Language Works!!
Well, since I have written it here on my blog, I better get to work on these works!!!
By the way, anyone out there make a cabinet for their maps? I would love to see pictures of homemade map cabinets. Thank you!
