Congratulations to Heather at Marine Corps Nomads on winning The King Will Make a Way giveaway. Remember you can download the pdf to read as well. I would love to hear from those of you who’ve read it. A couple people have left great reviews at Amazon.com.

Before I write about our America studies, I wanted to let you know that I added some photos to my Asia studies post. I have a photo of our salt dough volcano and my daughter’s Taj Mahal art project.

We’ve only just started back full swing into school. I’ve lengthened our school day and am requiring a certain amount of time out of the kids and not just a certain amount of material to finish. I’ve also added to the schedule their Bible and regular reading which doesn’t usual appear during our official school time because I don’t have trouble getting them to read, but I was feeling like we things weren’t getting done since we’ve all gotten discombobulated in the move and wanted to make sure they were reading enough daily.

They’ve been making state notebooking pages for me. My son has started using Glogster for this since he always prefers to work on the computer. This and digital lapbook designer both produce webpages you can share with others.

They’ve been using different websites to get their info. They are all listed on the Links to All Things Free for Homeschoolers blog. They have been playing different states and capitals games. (There are other games listed on the Links blog as well.)

We haven’t really done any history with the USA study except when states joined the union. Learning a more broad history of the world is an advantage of learning about different countries. Too much of our history studies revolve around America and Europe.

We’re going to flash back to the Middle East soon. I just slipped America in here because it was the easiest to do in the middle of the move.

We read this earlier this year so we didn’t repeat it now, but there is a great book for North America called Paddle to the Sea. There’s a movie of it as well. It’s about the Great Lakes region.

    A great book for Alaska is Willwaw by Tom Bodett. My children enjoyed listening to the audio book.
