Today we reviewed The Rag Coat by having Reagan narrate to me what she remembered. Reagan did really well and there were only a couple of points I thought it would be good to remember that she left out. We continued by reading Appalachia: The Voices of Sleeping Birds, I feel like this is such a great book to read when studying the Appalachians, and the only way I know to describe it is to say that the words bring to such a vivid picture in your mind of what the Appalachians must look like and the people that live there.
We looked at and talked about the compass rose and then we looked at a blank map of the United States and marked N, S, E and W. We found the Appalachian Mountains and marked them on this map, then found where we live and talked about the distance from us to the Appalachians, which direction we lived, the direction the Appalachians are in, etc.
Tomorrow the plan is to talk about coal.
