Product Description

Help children easily learn the names and locations of the fifty states and their capitals with the catchy music of Audio Memory!

States & Capitals Songs includes 10 songs and 4 test songs which teach children the states by region: the northern border, the southern border, the eastern border, the middle and the Pacific states. After students learn the states, they learn the capitals in the same order; during the test, they have to remember both the name of the state and the capital as they move from west to east. Songs are different, and repeated with a pause before the answers are provided, allowing students to self-test their knowledge. This map is numbered in the same order that the locations are sung in the songs, making it easy to locate the locations while you are singing. Students can color the map while they listen to the songs. The lyrics of the songs are on the map, making it easy for students to point to locations while they sing.

This kit includes:

  • Audio CD
  • 25" x 36" map of the USA with 172 items to label

Homeschool Specialists' Review

Early elementary school is the best time to introduce facts that will become the foundation of future learning, because, until about fourth grade, kids have an amazing capacity for memorization! Early instruction filled with numbers, times tables, spelling words, letters, and sounds stays with them throughout their schooling.

Using music as a tool to memory learning is both easy and fun. Somehow putting information to quirky tunes really helps with recall. I used Grammar Songs with my kids to study parts of speech and punctuation rules. There are activities and exercises throughout the book to reinforce the concepts in each song.

From this same series, we used Geography Songs for continents, oceans, and countries, as well as the solar system. We had a blast learning about Africa, the most challenging continent, with 57 countries in one song! States and Capitals Songs covered all 50 states and their capitals.

The songs themselves won't win any music awards, but when information is put to music, the process of memorization becomes much easier. Vast amounts of knowledge can be accessed by recalling the tune to a song. My children still remember some of the songs we learned, and they are adults now!

Tip: We used the CD's in the car to make better use of our driving time.

Kit includes audio CD with 16 songs, 68-page student workbook featuring song lyrics and written exercises, teacher's guide with activity suggestions, and answer key.

    It's all in a person's perspective -right?! From our family's standpoint, these songs are a "must" as part of our home educating endeavors. We lost/ruined our previous copy & thus re-ordered our copy per request of our children. They sang the songs from memory while we did not own a good copy. If my children remember states & capitals from what one reviewer calls a "disappointment", then I call it success. Although, we agree with the reviewer who labels this CD as "catchy".

    My children are quite pleased to be able to play the familiar State/Capital songs once again. Our package was opened immediately upon it's arrival at our doorsteps. Smiling children are now listening to this CD as well as to the Geography CD of the same company.

    I wouldn't purchase this again. It's not creative.

    This material is not creative at all. I was expecting something like the review says it is. The music is not something your kids will want to sing and dance to, it's actually pretty boring! I was very disappointed. One "song" is actually just a man saying some of the states. I like the big map that it comes with, however it is a very poor black and white copy. The dots on the map to signify capitals or other important places in the State look exactly the same, making it hard to understand what is what. Just a total let down.

    The first song about the states and capitals repeats with them leaving out some of the words. My kids try to say the words and ahve fun with it. It is super cheezy. WE only listen to the first half about states and capitals. It has definitely stuck in our heads and they know them all know. The other songs just about the states seem sort of pointless because they don't help at all unless they are looking at the map (which it is designed for). The songs take states in a row. For example, all the northern states, the states along the eastern border working your way up. If they are used in conjunction with the map that comes with it, then it can be very valuable. But we think only the states and capitals songs are bearable. The states songs are annoying and not very creative. I would still recommend it, because like I said, they learned all their capitals and will walk around humming the first 5 or 6 songs.

    We used this as a cassette over 20 years ago in our homeschooling program. My then 6-year-old son learned all his states and capitals and in what regions and order. My then 9-year-old daughter learned them as part of her curriculum, but this recording solidified her memory of them. I ordered a new CD set as I now have grandchildren who will be homeschooled. I lost my previous set after loaning it to a piano student who was having difficulty learning states and capitals. Thank you for this great way to learn!

    I find it completely corny, but catchy. My kids love it! Even my 4 year old asks for it when it is her turn to pick the music. And I loved it when my 2 year old sang "Boston Massachusetts" in his 2 yr old way over and over. He is even listening. My 8 year old randomly has come up to me to tell me capitals of states. She's proud and having fun, a great buy.
