I have lots to say about it. In a nutshell, we. love. it.
In the coming week or two, I hope to elaborate on that statement. For now, I just wanted to share a little something I made for Stephen (but mainly me, ahem) to give him (or rather, me) a different method of practicing the countries and capitals of Europe. He hasn’t wanted to use Seterra or Quizlet to practice, and drawing and labeling are tough to do when you’re on the road as much as we have been the past couple of weeks. So… let’s bring out the handy dandy, real-life flashcards.
(Flashcards are really my answer to just about anything.)
There are two versions…
If you have an older elementary student who has been through the Foundations cycles a few times and needs an extra challenge as a sixth grader, it would be quite beneficial to start memorizing the countries and capitals of Europe (and/or any other part of the world, for that matter). Although it’s not necessary to tackle it before Challenge, it would be nice to have a bit more mastered before going into Challenge A so you can focus more on physical features and drawing. 🙂
