When I was a kid, I was obsessed with learning the states and capitals. I was the first kid in my class to memorize them all, and I was proud of learning all of the state abbreviations without prompting. I copied facts about every state out of the encyclopedia, and made my own little booklets about each one.
As I began homeschooling, I hoped my children would match my enthusiasm about learning this topic, but they didn't LOL. Now, I have a 13 year old who is finally ready to learn about them, so we are digging in… deep! I wrote this post to share the resources we've found to help your kiddos learn the states and capitals. I'm also working on a series of workbooks for each state, so be sure to check back for those. So far, I've got Alabama ready for ya.
