    Exclusive Bonus available only with this bundle!

    I love having an articulation bus hunt with my littles during this unit. I put articulation pictures on the back of my buses and place them around the room for the children to find. We get to practice our artic words and answer "where" questions. (Where was your bus?) I've included Bonus BW bus templates you can print on bright yellow paper to have your own hunt!
