Environmental Print! {Freebies!}

Check out what I've been up to this week!

That's right.  I've been gallivanting all over the city snapping pictures for my new Environmental Print Alphabet posters! I managed to find 1-3 pictures for each letter of the alphabet and only used half of a tank of gas. :)

Do you use environmental print in your classroom?  Here's one of the activities I like to do:
*Revised 3:00pm Central Standard Time- sorry for the mislabeling on p. 4 and 5!
I'm guest blogging today for Marsha at A Differentiated Kindergarten.  Make sure you stop by to read my ideas about how to incorporate environmental print into the beginning of the year.  While you are there, you can download another freebie!

  3. Just wanted to let you know the lables on pages 4 and 5 do not match your pictures on the spinners. But it is a super cute game.

  7. Thanks for the great ideas! I use EP as well; I have the kids pick pictures they recognize and copy the names/words and then "write about" what they like about that pic. Great for beginning of the year!! Thanks again!

  14. I so wish I had found this when it was free! I teach students with autism and this would be wonderful, but I'm not sure I can justify the money and still have to print them out on my own!

  16. These look fantastic! They'll be going on my wish list for the big TPT sale! :)

    A little trick for the font you used (that doesn't really relate to this item, but is just a cool trick)... if you put a slash like / in the the ABC series of fonts, it'll insert a blank area, kind of like a space in between the two fonts. I usually only use that when I do the tracing fonts, but figured I'd pass it along since you use those fonts also! :)
