I went to the library and used their Ellison Cutter for this cut out of Michigan. Carter then glued it on to some construction paper. I printed off all the state "things" for Michigan. E.g. State bird, rock, etc. We cut these out and Carter glued them on and then we labled them. It was good practice for him to sound out words as well.
We also talked about how there are 4 Seasons in Michigan that we experience, the Great Lakes that surround Michigan and we've read several books pertaining to Michgian. We also checked the Michigan Theme Kit from the library which has been really fun so far (books, flannelgraph board w/animals, etc.) If you've never checked out a theme kit before you really should! They certainly add a lot to the theme of the week.
