It also include handprint cards (in color and b/w) that can be placed on a desk, table, wall, bulletin board, whiteboard, or even the floor. In addition to that are piano keyboards and individual hand cards which could be used whole class.

I am planning to laminate the footsteps, arrange them in a corner, then duct tape between and around them. I will use the colorful letters (sold in the larger set) with bright red duct tape! 26 cards (4inch by 5.5 inches) on 13 pages in color, 26 cards on 13 pages in black and white.
