Review by Mama Jenn

Evan-Moor Geography

I have been very impressed with all of the review products that I received fromTimberdoodle thus far. So, it is no surprise that I jumped at the opportunity to review some of the Evan-Moor titles…even in the midst of making a big move to another state! Well, I was NOT disappointed! In fact, I believe that I have found a GREAT supplement to current studies! I chose to review Daily 6-Trait Writing Grade 2 andDaily Geography Practice Grade 2.

Daily Geography Practice Grade 2 includes 36 weekly lessons along with 36 transparencies to use with each week. Each of the weekly lessons includes the following:

  • teacher resource page
  • geography vocabulary
  • reproducible map
  • two geography questions per day
  • challenge question
  • answer key

You can also view sample pages of the Daily Geography.

I choose the Daily Geography Practice with my three oldest kids (ages 7, 5, and 5) in mind. I thought this would be something fun for us to do together! First, we look at the map and I read through the text introducing the map.

We discuss the vocabulary and the kids use the Geography Glossary (included in the book) to look up the new vocabulary words.

Each day we go through the two questions related to the map. While photocopying is permitted for single-classroom use, I didn’t want to have to make copies of everything for all three kids. So, we take turns going over the questions orally.

When I first received the book, I didn’t think I would have much use for the transparencies. However, they have really become one of the focal points of our daily dose of geography! Each day we use the transparency of the map rather than the printed copy of it in the book. Just put a piece of printer paper behind it and the kids take turns using dry erase markers to color the transparency for the challenge assignments. In my opinion, this saves on making copies for all three kids. Plus, I will be able to re-use the book once my 3 year olds are older!

Again, I was impressed! I am loving Evan-Moor! I love that the kids are taught to read all kinds of maps: state maps, road maps, street maps, a map key, map grids, weather maps, etc. In the photo above, we were using a land and water map of Arizona and we learned a bit about the Grand Canyon!

My only complaint is not really my own, but that of my kids. They didn’t like that theyONLY got to do two questions each daySmile How is that for a complaint?!? If it were up to them, they would probably go through an entire week’s worth in just one day!  SmileWe are now the newest Evan-Moor fans!!!

Thank you Timberdoodle for introducing us to yet another awesome new resource! Needless to say, I/we love our Evan-Moor books!

If adding more thinking skills is in your homeschool plan, be sure to check out all of the curriculum, games, and puzzles Timberdoodle has to offer! Plus, be sure to take a peek at the Doodle Dollars program where you can earn 5% back when you shop Timberdoodle online!
