What's In Your Cart? Linky Party

It's time for another site-wide TPT sale.   Thanks to SLP Runner for sponsoring the Linky.

A great time to stock up on resources for teaching or therapy, or for clip art for new resources.
I have some new materials ready just in time for the sale.  I've been working really hard on some beginning guided reading/shared reading resources for special education and speech-language students.  I've used traditional, favorite folk tales and created language-based activities and reading structures for each of them.
I've used The Little Red Hen, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, The 3 Billy Goats Gruff, and the 3 Little Pigs.  For all of the stories I included vocabulary activities, sequencing and retelling activities, and story element activities.

I also added informational text for background knowledge about bears and pigs and goats and baking bread.  There are "I Can Read" books for the students to make, and Working with Words activities.
There's a lot in each resource!  And for even more savings, I've bundled the first 4 into one money saving and time saving package!

I'm also happy with my resource for using wordless picture books for building pragmatic language skills.  The book Pancakes for Breakfast is perfect for  having students pay attention to body language and facial expressions, as well as context cues to determine what the characters are thinking and why they are doing what they do.

In my own shopping cart, I've got loads of great clip art.  There's so much to choose from on TPT.  Their are many great artists who lend a hand when we create fun materials for kids.  

A lot of my resources need realistic-looking art for the students with Autism with whom I work.  One of my favorite clip artists at TPT is Away With the Pixels. Her realistic animals are fabulous.
I also love her people; like these:

The Painted Crow store also has some great fairly realistic looking clip art; like tis set in my cart:

I've got LOADS more clip art in my cart. I've become a clip art junkie. I'm not afraid to admit it, and I have no plans to enter rehab.

Have fun at the sale. Pick up some bargains. And keep on talking.
