Recently, I’ve received a question about one particular activity in “My Bright Journal”:
“Why doesn’t the map include the names of the countries or continents? Parents would need to find a map that actually displays the names of the places.”
Exactly! This is the idea! The page activity “Places I Want to Go” invokes investigation and dialog. You are expected to start with the questions, not answers.
It’s not just another map you can find on the web; it’s a way to discover and learn something new! This activity serves as a conversation starter too. If your child doesn’t have an idea, YOU SPEAK:
- share your dreams about traveling,
- mark all the places you’ve been,
- share some story about your trips and interesting people you’ve met traveling,
- recall some words in the different languages, food, and funny stories.
Enjoy the journey ?
