I teach 2nd grade in a Title I school. Our school is made up of 43% Hispanic students and 60% free and reduced lunch. We are also an ARI (Alabama Reading Initiative) school. We try to include reading in everything that we do. I love to make learning fun for my students through fun filled materials. In 2nd grade we start learning more about the globe, map, and how to locate places. I have found these great workbooks that will help enhance reading, and geography skills. By using these workbooks all the children will have equal opportunity to learning at home and school. The workbooks are loaded with great map skills and everyday geography vocabulary words. Along with the workbooks I plan to have each student make a geography vocabulary notebook. Every week when we learn new words we are going to write and illustrate them. With all of this said, these workbooks along with our textbook would be a great asset to my students in learning about their surroundings. I have listed below some facts about the workbooks. In Daily Geography Practice, Grade 2, 36 map lessons introduce basic geography skills and over 80 geography terms. What a perfect hands-on approach to geography instruction! Each weekly lesson includes: a reference map two geography questions for each day of the week a challenge question at the end of each week questions that progress in difficulty from Monday to Friday The geography skills presented at Grade 2 include: globes compass roses map keys map grids physical maps road and street maps rural, suburb, city, and state maps population and product maps tourist and weather maps political maps of the United States and the world Daily Geography Practice, based on the 18 National Geography Standards, provides a quick way to incorporate geography into the school day. We would greatly appreciate your help! Thank you for making our school year a GREAT learning experience!
