In most cases, we print the materials onto cardstock, laminate them with our Scotch® Laminating Dispenser and are “good to go.” We have used the laminator in a home office for many years and have never had a problem with it. We like the convenience of a cool (no heat) laminator as it is always ready.


Our free preschool and kindergarten printables are in PDF format, if you don’t already use Adobe Reader, you will need to use it to access the downloads.

Word Family Printables

These word family printables are great for children who are learning to read. We have grouped them together on our Word Family Printables page.

For a beginning reader, discovering that cot, dot, hot, pot and rot are related is exciting. Children who are just learning to sound out words will be thrilled to learn that they can substitute the beginning sound and read three, four or more related words. We view learning about word families as a great springboard for beginning readers.

Picture Dictionaries –

Helpful for beginning readers and writers, these picture dictionaries are all together on our Picture Dictionary page. We know young children get a great sense of satisfaction from using pictures to help them decode words. With these picture dictionaries, they can read a series of related words or they use the words to write a story.
