Free Technology for Teachers: Letters, Numbers, Seasons
The PBS Learning Media newsletter should be on the subscription list of every elementary school teacher in the United States. An example can be found in the latest issue of the PBS Learning Media newsletter. There I found a nice collection of free posters that can be downloaded as a PDF.
PBS Learning Media’s Classroom Poster Collection contains over a dozen colorful PDF files featuring the letters of the alphabet with representative icons, numbers, shapes and short words. In the poster collection you will also find the seasons of the year, the months of the year and the weather. Finally, the collection also includes posters on classroom emotions and routines.
Applications for education
As you prepare your classroom for the new school year, you may need some new materials for your walls. The PBS Learning Media Poster Collection is a good place to find wall material. I would also keep the collection bookmarked to share with parents who ask for resources they can use at home. For example, as a dad, I plan to print the weather and seasonal posters to put on our refrigerator next to our daily screen.
