We've Moved and gotten a makeover.

Tuesday, February 23, 2010


Just in case you didn't know, Kelly and I (Kasey) both homeschool our 5 and 6 year old girls.  As I was looking for a World Map puzzle today there are several I found that are awesome.  Especially compared to the $29.99 I paid at Staples for just a laminated world map, these deals are much better.  The map from Staples is going back, thank goodness I hadn't opened it yet.

USA World Combo Desk Map Grades K-2 ($11.95)
Featuring the USA on one side and the World on the other.  Laminated for durability, this colorful and simple placemat can be written on and wiped again and again!

USA & World Wall Atlas (Wallzilla) 
Wallzilla?? - It can be repeatedly removed and reapplied without losing its sticky!!  Prices start at $45.00

 Magnetic - Play-N-Learn
Buy individually for $12.95 or a set for $21.90.  
 Place the magnetic piece onto its corresponding color and shape on the map, or for a bigger challenge, put the World and USA together on your refrigerator or other metal surface.  Great for roadtrips!

  1. I am working on a vacation project for my daughter - and that included a search for a US map. I found one at Dollar Tree that is finished so that you can use dry erase markers on it. They also had several others - handwriting, math, maps, history, etc - all for $1/2pcs. (I also purchased a cursive handwriting and multiplication table for her desk area - anything to help with learning.)

    We are going to be using it to put pins in all of the places she has visited, so it's a long term project.

  2. If you are serious about memorizing geography and think you can stand it - Get a shower curtain with a map on it. Turning the map side into the shower, use it as a liner. While sudsing up in the shower, you, your kids, or any company you might have can maximize their time by studying geography. Really maximize that time with some geography tunes and there is nothing stopping you! From what I have seen, these maps are fairly inexpensive.
