I just received the nicest comment about “Let’s Memorize States & Capitals” cards. This is why I love what I do. (Making memorizing fun.) I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could associate the state name with the capital name. I tried different stories and pictures and if I couldn’t remember them after a few weeks, out they’d go until I found the perfect match. I also love it when parents participate in the learning fun with their kids!
How the States & Capitals Cards work:
On one side of the card, is the question, “What is the capital of Louisiana?” On the back is s picture and short story to make an association with the name of the capital and the state name.
Louise and Anna sat on a bat and put
on rouge before the baseball game.
Remember: Louisiana = Louise & Anna
Baton Rouge = bat on rouge
