Recipes to Try

This year I added some more work to the state study. The kids are coloring in the states as we do them on a state map in the front of their State Notebook.

For each state, Lego Man and Princess P are filling out some notebooking pages. You can find them over at Harrington Harmonies
They are perfect for what we are doing. I like that the kids have to write the information down. I think it will help them retain some of the information better.
I also found a few printable worksheets. There are word searches, crossword puzzles, vocabulary sheets, and coloring pages! Lego Man loves word searches, so he really enjoys them.

Another resource we are using this year are a set of State books from Highlights my kids received from their grandmother. She gave them to me a few years ago when the kids weren't ready for them and I had forgotten about them. They are filled with a bunch of information and a map of each state!
Our books are over 10 years old, but Highlights still has similar set called Which Way USA.
I don't have the newer books so I can't confirm they are the same, but you may want to check them out.
