USA Geography | New York

Next on our trip through the Northeast is New York!

New York is such a fun state to learn about!  Reading was the main theme this week as there were so many read aloud options and Abby (well all the girls, really) loved reading them, some several times.  My favorite sites for books are here and here


These cute figurines are from a set of NYC Toobs I found at a local arts and crafts store.  They were perfect to accent our shelf and Abby was pretty interested in each piece. The items are labeled for easy reference and we spent one day specifically looking each up online and reading interesting facts.


We also took some time to look at various paintings and illustrations by Norman Rockwell.  I remember my grandmother having several copies of The Saturday Evening Post laying around her home and thought it would be fun to have Abby illustrate her version of the magazine cover.  I found this printable for her to use.



  1. Abby grace, you are adorable. Great choice of books. The activities sounds so interesting. Love following along.

    1. There is SO MUCH to do with New York. She loved watching videos we found online and really diving into the various landmarks.

  2. Yep, this is a must have on our school wall. The kids forget all the time where the states are. Heck I forget, lol!

    1. Haha! Yeah this one is great because it's peel and stick and can be repositioned if need be.
