Read some of the reviews:
"This is so wonderful! The teachers in my building really appreciate the exposure to literature and reading!"

"Oh, this file looks incredible! It is exactly what I am looking for this year. I want to use a lot more literature with my PreK and K kiddos and this fits my need perfectly! I love how music is embedded in the smartboard slides - this is a great time saver. I can't wait to use these this year, in a few weeks to be exact. Thank you and please do more of these!"

"I can not tell you how much time you have saved me in creating these, and how excited I am to use them with the students!"


Please note that you will have to either purchase tracks for the "Quick as a Cricket" listening lesson, or use appropriate music from your own music library. Royalty-free music is provided for "Giraffes Can't Dance."
