GOODNESS! February was a rough month for us! I am so glad to be back to blogging, and have some wonderful posts to share with you. So, even though the blog hasn't been rollin', that doesn't mean that the school has been out of session!
Seems, I have some MAJOR catching up to do.... I promised several weeks ago about some additional items that didn't make it into the first post about Arkansas.
Bluegrass music and squaredancing:
Please check my last post to hear some bluegrass instruments.
I also made some 3 part cards of bluegrass instruments. You can get them here.
In that first post, I mentioned that we attempted to squaredance. However, it's a little difficult, if you only have 2 people. I did find several websites that show animations of the people, which we then tried a couple of simple moves. You can see the animations here (click on left toolbar) and here (click on the link to see the animation).
Arkansas isn't called "The Natural State" for nothing! There is so much you can study, in terms of nature. Since ducks are a major sport in this state, I chose to add in 3 part cards for the names of male, female, child, and group of ducks.
This is something I am definitely working on adding more 3 part cards for -- animal families. (Each week, I'm hoping to add one animal family set of cards that has some type if significance for that state. So, over time, you should end up with a complete set of animal family cards.) I hope someone else can use these besides me. You can get them here.
Musings of Me also has raccoon printables to go along with this craft.)
Yep, you heard me right! As a southern, and a BIG fan of the SEC conference and sports, we talked about the Arkansas razorbacks. So, we watched this youtube video of some Arkansas fans chanting their famous (at least its famous in our neck of the woods) "woo pig sooie" chant. ... and we chanted some on our own.
Well, that's it! I hope that gives you a few more ideas when you are studying Arkansas.
