      I am sending this to you. Sorry it is not ready to download yet. Thank you. The girls will love the Will Sloppy Sal Lose Her Pal? story. It might be fun for you to do this as a skit so they will really get the message or see the contrast of a neat verses a sloppy girl.

    I would like the handouts and story. It’s unfortunate that they are not conveniently made available. I do appreciate you posting this idea. I’m just less likely to use it since I cannot find the resources for the activity.

      Sorry. This activity is only in the Primary Partners Super Socials book now. The CD-ROM is no longer available. If you want these fun activities you will need to purchase the book and color the images.

      It’s a great find while supplies last.

      Hopefully eventually they will be on this website for download, but for now find the book. SEE THE HOME PAGE TO know where to purchase it.
