For ages 5-6 or Kdg students just learning to read and write. This is a template for parents/teachers to use with a child to create an "I Like ..." book. Requires an iOS or Android tablet to access the pages and edit them. Sorry, can't do it online or on a phone (for now). This is actually a fine motor exercise for the child with emphasis on writing and drawing skills.
