    Good morning,
    Thank you for everything you do for us. With your pictures our lesson became more intresting, attractive and unified.
    Thank you so much.
    I would also suggest you to make cards like:
    (where there are two people on a picture (a boy and a girl) and they are talking: Like Hello! How are you?
    Also you know that there are many songs and chants that require kids to do some actions like: clap your hands, spin around, turn lef, turn right, sit down, jump up high, hands up and so on. These cards could be incredibly important in deal of visualising songs.
    So I just whant to say you Thank you so much.

      Thank you so much for leaving your message!
      I thought I would draw pictures for greeting (something like “Hello” or “Good Morning”) soon. I don’t know when I can put them on my site, but I’m sure I’ll draw them. If you have any other phrases of greeting you want me to draw, please let me know!
      Also, visualizing songs is really good idea! Actually, I used to draw pictures to explain song lyrics. I don’t sing in my lessons much now, so please tell me any songs you need pictures.

      Thank you for ideas again!

  5. jay says:

    I would like a card for “excuse me”. Children are always moving between others and sometimes barge through without words.
