Eggs Everywhere! ---new free printable

If you notice, all of my stuff is free.  Perhaps if I needed the income to supplement my school salary, I'd be selling, too.  For now, though, I'm grateful for my job and the kids I work with, I'm grateful for my husband who supported me for years as I worked, and I want other SLPs and teachers who may be struggling with a lack of instructional funding to use my materials with children.  I hope these downloads help someone.

Here's the latest---based on my earlier books.  I'm a believer in repetition, so if you read 'Bunnies Everywhere' and 'Shamrocks Everywhere', you'll see this is similar.  It's named (not too creatively) 'Eggs Everywhere'. 

This book is 15 pages, including the icons page.  Objectives can include:
  • simple prepositions (in, on, under)
  • commenting
  • describing a picture with a simple patterned sentence
  • labeling familiar pictures
  • getting ready for your own Easter egg activities!

Use the blue area as a sentence strip. Cut up the rest.

  1. Ruth,
    I truly appreciate you sharing these books with all of us. I have a population of students that absolutely love the books and I use them weekly! The kids love the photographs (especially the animals) and I love all of the language targets I can address in a fun and engaging way. Thank you, thank you!

  3. Ruth, I am so very grateful for all of the ideas you share, but most especially for the books. I have them all printed and laminated and put into binders with nice covers and spines, and lined up on the bookshelf in my therapy room. They are perfect for my population of autistic, Down Syndrome, and ID kids. They catch the eye of most of my younger students who are in general ed, as well. The kids who are struggling to read love them. I make smaller copies of many of them and send them home to parents, who tell me they're excited to have simple stories they and their children can interact with, stories that the children return to again and again. One of my student's parents added pictures of their own cat and made "Where are the Cats?" twice as long! I can easily modify topic boards and icons to work on specific goal areas. I have a minimal budget for materials, and all the copying, laminating, and binding come out of my own pocket. 90% of the students at my school live below the poverty level. Please know that by sharing these books with us for free, you are giving a priceless gift that benefits many, many people. Thank you.
