Fish and Friends---printable book and icons

I've been a little slow with postings this summer.  Maybe it's due to the 105 degree temps, or maybe I'm out of ideas.  I will say that I've met some great kids in ESY, one of whom has inspired me to launch into the 5k club.  That will be September 15th.   For those of you who live around Chapel Hill, and who like to walk or run, this race is for a wonderful cause.  Read about it HERE.  I'm sure this will be a future blog entry.

For now, I just want to say that I've continued with the ocean/beach theme this summer.  Last summer, I wrote about a book I used, but that was before I discovered how to share Google Docs.  Now I know how, so I uploaded both the book and the printable icons to go with it.  Print all, laminate, bind, and velcro, and you have a book to use with lots of kids.  Sample pages are shown below.  This book is slightly similar to my other book (Yellow Fish, Yellow Fish, What do you see?).  If you wonder why, it's because I strongly believe the kids need repetition, with slight changes the next time concepts are presented.  It's all about joint action routines.  They learn the language for an activity, then the activity is changed a bit, but not completely different.  They then learn some new things, but review the old.  Have fun with this---download away!!! 

My actual book with a real kid's hand!
