Here’s a set of picture cards I created to provide a visual to my kids while learning the circles of latitude. They love holding the cards, setting them up on the floor and rearranging them. Sometimes I print the set twice so we can play memory (that’s what we did this week).
We also play games like: Who is missing? I have them cover their eyes and I hide a card. When they open their eyes they have to look at the cards, think about the information we are learning and figure out which card is missing. They love playing games and the great thing is that they are reviewing the material over and over without even realizing it. 🙂
Another thing I like to incorporate is body movements. This week, we got the idea from Melody at And Here We Go! She posted this idea on her blog and I thought it was wonderful! Have you checked her blog? Go on and give her a visit, she has wonderful ideas and resources. I check her blog every week to help me get ready to plan my week and get inspired to create material. Thank you Melody for all your hard work! 🙂
Here’s the video with the body movements. My kids got a little silly at the end and started rolling on the floor 🙂 The idea is to just touch your toes.
