Butterflies; and a website for free materials

Before blogs became popular, I was always searching websites for ready-made materials.  One of my favorite places to go was the Jefferson Parish Public Schools Speech/AT website.  There are lots of books to download and assemble!  Some require Boardmaker, while others don't. If you look at the screenshot, you'll see that the materials are organized by age, and within each age group, they are categorized by subject.

in each age, downloads are categorized by subject

Click on an age, and the window on the
right will appear. 

one example of selections--this is the insect theme

Click on a subject, and a selection of materials free to download, will appear.  They will either be in Boardmaker,
Powerpoint, or PDF.


If you look at the list on the right, you will see "Butterfly Story".
I printed that and you can see the pictures below.
I really like it with my kids because it's simple, yet teaches concepts of color.  The kids often just try to match the colors, but they have to listen to, or read the sentence that goes with the page.

The author included all the icons you need for the kids to make sentence strips to go with each page.  I didn't have these at my house tonight.  I suggest you go to this website and print it all.  It's a nice little book for the spring.

Since this book is not mine, I don't have it in my Google drive for you to download.  Go HERE and click on Butterfly Story.  It's all there!

I hope you all are having a nice spring.  My graduate intern leaves after this Monday :(
