It's finally summer. Today was my last day and I'm so excited. Now that I have some time off, it's time to ............ PLAN FOR NEXT YEAR. LOL I mean, what teacher really takes the summer off? We are constantly looking for new ideas, and reworking what we did this year to fit in with next years' group. Some may also be changing grades. Maybe next year you are going to have a child with special needs in your class?
To help you with some fresh ideas for next year, I've teamed up with some amazing blogging buddies to show you some great products and freebies to get your year started right.
For my freebie, I'm giving away book 4 of my Zoo Keeper Interactive Books. Here are a few pictures of the packet in action.
There are 4 interactive books in the packet. Here are books 3 and 4.
It also comes with mini take home books for the children to colour and fill in.
This is book 4. In this book, the children are working on picking out the word "her". The word choices are Velcroed to the bottom of the page and the extras are Velcroed to the inside front cover.
As the children read, they choose the correct word from the choices at the bottom and place it in the sentence.
Once the right word is in the sentence, I have the children point to each word as they read or as the teacher reads it, if the child is non-verbal.
Each book comes with a matching mini book that the children can colour and fill in.
If the child can print, they can fill in the correct word with a pencil. This is great for practicing the targeted word.
If your child can not print, the targeted word is available to be cut out. Just cut and paste on the blank line.
The large package also includes flash cards. These are perfect for book 3, which requires students to find the right animal name to put into the sentence.
