Learn the States Postcard Swap!

I'm SO excited!! We are a part of a postcard swap! Our Adventures in Education started a “Learn the States” Postcard Swap and we are pleased to represent the great state of Oklahoma {Arkansas was taken, so we chose our neighbor}. We drive through OK on our way to TX, so it will be easy to get our postcards. Each family represents one of the 50 states and we will receive a new postcard each week for 50 weeks!

My plan is to put up a large map of the United States, and
ct each postcard that we receive to it’s corresponding state with a piece of yarn {see picture on the left, courtesy of}. Also, we will color-in each state on our Sonlight markable map. This will be a great way to learn the location of each state.

I have always wanted to participate in a postcard swap...what a fun way to learn the states! Everyone loves to get mail. :) I'll post each time we get a new postcard.


  1. That sounds like a lot of fun! We've never done anything like that, what a great way to teach US Geography. Thanks for stopping by to comment on my Blog Cruise post. Sorry about what happened at your co-op experience. We are normal! just aren't for everyone:) I'm following you now. Your blog layout is really nice and easy on the eyes!

  2. Silly me, we lived in Southeast Arkansas. About an hour south of LR. I loved it there. You would probably enjoy my family blog, where I blogged about a Jersey girl living in Arkansas. It was quite funny at times. It's a beautiful state! My kids all claim they are moving back when they grow up, they miss it so much!

  3. Hi, Jodi! We are Texas natives...moved up to AR 2.5 years ago and we LOVE it here! The winters are cold & long to me {being a TX girl that never really knew what winter meant ~lol}, but it is so beautiful! The kids enjoy the snow days and it is nice to live where we have seasons...makes nature study so much easier! :) I enjoy your blog! Thanks for following me here.
