I spent much of the summer sorting our belongings. Here is another teaching technique I want to remember. I found these from when the children were young. They are simple cut-out shapes that fit one inside of the other. The smallest is called "Our House" and has our street address written on it. That circle fit into a bigger circle that says "City" and listed our city's name. Next is a shape for "Our County", "Our State", "Our Country" and "The Continent" that we live in. This is a visual way to understand our place in the world. It also helped our children realize that cities fit into counties which fit into states and so on.
We no longer live at this address, but I blacked it out just in case.
