What Can Pandas Do? Printable book with icons

Happy last week of January!  Here is the latest 'verb' book---all about pandas.  Pandas are very cute, and if my daughters were still little, they would probably want a pet baby one.  That's impossible, so for all of you who work with little kids, here's the next best thing---a book full of cute panda pictures.

For speech therapy purposes, each page has the panda (or pandas) as the constant noun, with a different verb accompanied by an adorable picture illustrating that verb.   I've also made a page of Boardmaker icons so kids that need to match verb icon to the appropriate page can do so.  You can laminate it all, attach velcro, and have fun.  Find a stuffed panda to have the kids act it all out. 




I created this on Tarheel Reader.  You can go there to see it, or you can download from the following links:

    1. Not Austin, but I wouldn't mind a temp job in Portland when I retire. It would be fun to live there for 3 months.

  4. I just want to tell you how much I love your printable books. I use them all the time. I am a speech pathologist who works in the school setting. One of my assignments is working with a preschool assistive technology class (the kids all use AT devices to help them communicate). I'm in charge of running a "literacy group" and I often adapt your stories so that the students can read them with their devices. FYI - I always credit you on the front of the book so it is known who originally created the book. Then I write "adapted by (my name). I hope that is okay. Please let me know if I should be doing anything else. If you want to give me your email address, I can email you one of the books that I have adapted so that you can see. Anyway, thanks for all the great books!! You are so creative! :)
