Reading Classification

Yesterday I was reviewing my language album and classroom materials. When I got to my reading classification card sets I noticed that over the years my sets have become tattered, incomplete, and many of them are of different sizes and made on different templates. How nice to have a uniform set of at least the basic cards! What a luxury to have them all complete, laminated, and in pouches in good condition!

So my project this weekend has been to do just that. I've made the following sets so far and you are welcome to download them (for free) here:

Fruit- mainly fruits we eat at school
Body Parts -very difficult to find appropriate pictures on the web of body parts such as chest, torso, and to NOT get photos of diseased body parts... funny that I found myself using search terms like "healthy human head"
Geometric Solids
Flowers- these are typical flowers found both indoors and outdoors in Aruba, so they might not be useful for people living in other countries
Classroom Furniture

Enjoy! I know I will!
