Brief Description of the Site:
They say there’s no free lunch, but they cannot deny that there are free things available on the Web such as these reproducibles, all available as PDF files (Adobe Acrobat Reader necessary). Part of the TFK (Time Magazine for Kids) site, this page is a goldmine of high-interest materials in 15 categories, from “Animals†through “Holidays†to “World History.†The files are also archived by grade level (K-1, 2-3, 4-7). Materials range from the very simple (students must show elapsed time on a clock face) to the very contemporary (a map of the Middle East showing Iraq and a Venn Diagram of candidates Bush and Kerry). Many of the reproducibles are simplistic and thus probably more appropriate for the younger grades, but it is worth browsing to find items that older students could appreciate. They are all colorful and/or bold, and except for the hidden cost of the ink/copier toner needed to print/reproduce them, they cost absolutely nothing – which makes them a definite bargain.

How to use the site:
Browse and examine. When you locate a “keeper†either print it immediately or save it for later printing. This is a great place to do some early preparation for next semester or build up a file of materials for those unexpected occasions.
