All products feature a cute Sock Monkey theme. This game was originally created back in 2009 and I have totally revised the file. (same graphics though as 2009) I have provided the storage labels and I can statements like this in case you ever have to switch grade levels and for differentiation purposes for CCSS. We have many different levels within our room and administrators love to see the I Can Statements or Objectives posted. You can also choose to put the I Can Statement in your literacy center.

Original Artwork: See Graphics Credit Pages inside ebook for clickable links to the 5 Graphic Artists who provided the adorable artwork for this product. The sock monkey graphics were purchased back in 2009 and are no longer available to my knowledge, but I have given credit to the artist and the site where they were purchased.
