Learn and Explore.…..
I found these great workbooks from DK about several different subjects and several different grade levels.  Below I have taken each page from the Pre-K Geography workbook and provided some additional educational materials to help teach each topic to your child.

In the beginning of each workbook there are stars and a contents area that allows you to
put a sticker on each page that you complete.  At the end of the book, after all of the pages have been completed there is a completion certificate for this workbook.

I have included links to additional printables and books.  You may want to scroll ahead to see these resources to decide if you would like to include these in your Geography curriculum.

When deciding what to teach my son in Kindergarten, I felt that it was important go over each letter in the alphabet.  He already knows the sounds of each letter and can recognize both upper and lower case letters, this book will focus on sight words for each letter.  We are using this book as our main art projects for the year, there will be cutting, painting and sticker fun for each letter.  We are trying to focus on one letter per week.  At the end of the year, it will be fun to go over this book and see what he has accomplished.

Preschool Prep Letter G Sight Words and Book

Standard

th
Learn words that begin with the letter g with this great letter g book.
You can read this book online for Free at Open Library (My G Book)

fsight-2f-sight-words

I created sight word/sequence cards to go with this book.  Download the Free PDF’s, print the box (only one time for
all letter books) on brown card stock or paper.  Print the sight word cards on white paper or card stock.  I suggest laminating them before cutting them out, as you can use these sight words again and again.

Page 1, Page 2 and Box

What we do……..
We read this book daily, I lay the box and the sight word cards out on the floor or table.  Each time little g puts an item in the box, my son will find the card with that same item and put it into his box.  I make sure and emphasize the sound the letter  g makes.  While we are reading the book, I will discuss the items that are plural and what that means.  Example: Fire Truck and Fire Trucks. After the story, I ask him to tell me 5 things that begin with the letter g.
