Also, you may be interested to know that the Build-a-Word phonics/ELA activities that correlate with this selection are included for free. Enjoy! Michelle;)

Please note, this product does not have tons of color graphics (with the exception of a some posters and a Nonsense Word Bingo Game for 6 Players). It is intentionally created in this format. If you prefer color, this is not the product for you and you may want to look at purchasing a different Life in the Forest file. This file is primarily in black and white to conserve ink. Thanks:)

Hugs and Happiness to YOU and please remember this is primarily a BLACK-LINE RESOURCE:)

You will love this resource because it is practical, economical, saves you tons of time, but most of all because your students will love it:)

As an educator, it gives you professional, ready-made GO-TO-LESSONS that make teaching and learning interactive, effective, and fun. The graphics are always TOP-NOTCH:) and beyond adorable:)
