    We are new members in YMB+ and we are starting with the Land that I Love Morning Time plans. We pair US Geography with US History. Studying California at the same time we study the Gold Rush for example. These plans are so perfect to go along with any study of US History and or Geography. The book selections are really good. The choices of an interesting person, landmark, and folktales to explore for each state are things I’ve spent tons of time researching myself in the past. These plans are saving me so much time! Plus we are actually doing art study.
