Since JJ is going into the 5th grade, I figure it's the perfect time to get a hard start on the "map" so we started w/ State Abbreviations.
WHAT I DID:
Got 2 different colored sheets of foam
Cut out 50 squares of each color
Write the States on 1 color and the Abbreviations on the other
Line the States in rows and give them the Abbreviations to work with
I'm very proud of him he got almost all correct but had a hard time w/ M's
