Read Around the World

I love this idea from The Read Aloud Handbook (well worth a read!), and Maya loves maps and stickers: you simply place a sticker on each country you read a book about as a way to make story-time more interactive and learn some geography in the process.

We didn’t have an extra world map floating around that I wanted to smother in stickers, so I downloaded this map image, glued it on a piece of cardboard, and used twine to hang it next to our bookshelf. We put stars on the countries Maya’s been to, and started putting circles on the countries we’ve read about (today…so far).
