"The states are bored and long for a change, so they decide to swap spots in hopes that each can get to see a different part of the country."
This was a hilarious DVD and I even watched it many times, not because I had the time but it got me hooked! I couldn't resist the jokes that the states were poking at each other! My son has had a special place in his heart for geography from a young age. He loves maps..just any map. He would sit and talk about it for a long time and enjoys knowing capitals and names of countries. So when I told him that this was a story about a country and states, he really paid close attention to it.
Scrambles States of America has 4 stories :
- SCRAMBLED STATES OF AMERICA
- THE SCRAMBLED STATES OF AMERICA TALENT SHOW
- DO UNTO OTTERS (A BOOK ABOUT MANNERS)
- OPEN WIDE: TOOTH SCHOOL INSIDE
Every story was a master piece and we LOVED, LOVED and LOVED it. It was funny too as the states of USA talk to each other about their ethnicity and what is popular in their states. They decide to scramble themselves to know more about where the other lived. Finally they all get back to their places as there is no place like home! It encouraged familiarity of the state names and also the pronunciation.
I would look forward to seeing Scholastic produce something similar for the provinces of Canada too.
I also appreciate the story illustrated with a white background. The other 3 stories were equally interesting and Tooth School is one awesome tool to teach children about dental hygiene. I did some extra talking with my toddler about Tooth School as brushing is not his favorite activity.
This DVD supports Geography; manners; Dental Hygiene.
