Art and Geography (4-2-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:        Art can help your child learn geography.

PRACTICE:   Today, read MY GRANDMA LIVES IN FLORIDA to your child and point out the interesting things in the book about Florida’s cities, animals, weather, and fish.

Have your child draw pictures about those things. You can look up the animals and fish on the Internet so she can see what they look like.

Have her make-up a pretend fish that might live in Florida.  Have her draw it. Have her give it a name. Have her tell you all about the fish and what it is like. Ask her why Florida would be a good place for that type of fish to live.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MY GRANDMA LIVES IN FORIDA.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
