I'm a firm believer in interactive books. If they require additional action on the part of the reader - be it answering questions, searching for clues, or writing down notes - then the learning experience is amplified. And I think it is just much more fun for the kids and, therefore, a great way to develop your child's literacy skills and love for reading.
So I'm happy to kick off this week of Día celebratory giveaways by sharing with one lucky MommyMaestra reader this United States Activity Atlas by Priddy Books.
As the cover states, this book is 40 wipe-clean pages of United States activities. With the book comes three dry erase markers and a small cloth wipe. Inside the pages of the book you will find snippets of information about each state (sometimes the pages double up on states, that's why there's only 40 pages!). You may find fill in the blanks, counting exercises, crossword puzzles, and many other different challenges for your 1st through 4th grader.
This book does not share extensive information about each state, but I have found it to be an excellent introduction to the states for young children. In addition to the various activities, each state requires letter tracing to help young children perfect their writing skills. And the best part? When you're finished, just wipe it all off and start over! English only.
One MommyMaestra reader will receive a copy of the United States Activity Atlas.
