Using the big Geography Binder worked really well for us during the first semester of CC; however, we've reached a place where the extra stuff isn't necessary right now. I'd like to share with you how I teach Geography to my kindergartner - the simplified way.
Here's what we use:
- cake decorating sprinkles (leftover from Christmas)
- a map (we use the Cycle 2 Europe map in color from C3 or the Trivium Table)
- a list of countries to learn (also on the Trivium Table)
That's it! That's how we're learning our countries, and the whole process takes about 10 minutes a day. We do about four or five locations a week (either mountain ranges, seas, or countries), and it's totally working for us (we're almost finished with Europe!). I think the key is consistency. A little bit, everyday, just a little, just the basics, and she's picking it up. So, if you're having trouble fitting Geography into your daily routine, maybe some sprinkles will help! ;)
repeated day in and day out.
