In honor of reaching 100 followers of my blog, I am hosting my first review and giveaway!

Ana from Ingles 360 is offering my readers the chance to win an
ocean themed pack of printables just in time for summer!

Ana is a Christian teacher who lives in South America and teaches English as a second language to kids preK-12. She has created tons of awesome printables great for the classroom or homeschool including:
flannel board sets, pocket chart sets, classroom management, and tons of great vocabulary rich games and printables. With a large variety of themes to chose from you are sure to find something to complement your preschool and Kindergarten lessons.

You can find a full listing of all of her products at her CurrClick Store!
Most of them are $1 and she even has a section of freebies!

Here's is what's included in this Ocean Themed Pack...

Cook Up a Story ~ Little Mermaid
You can see in the picture that this one has plenty of great activities with it!
~ Little Mermaid story with envelope
~ Doorknob hanger, bookmarks, and reading badges
~ Vocabulary matching cards
~ Clothespin beginning letter vocabulary wheels
~ Reading journal to reinforce reading comprehension
~ Croscurricular cards listing activity ideas for
Art, Science, Cooking and a Poem
related to the theme of the story.
~ Task Cards related to the setting, characters, plot and author

I absolutely LOVE this pack and will definitely be purchasing some of the other titles. It is the perfect complement to our reading lessons. My kids love any kind of badge/sticker they get to the wear and the doorknob hanger was a big hit. It definitely increased their excitement over reading the story. The reading journal and task cards are perfect way to work on reading comprehension. The beginning letter vocabulary wheels were great for beginning sounds practice. The vocabulary matching cards were a great way to review words related to our story. And I LOVED the crosscurricular cards with ideas to keep us busy while working on skills in other areas while using the story as inspiration.
If you have a beginning reader then you should definitely check out her full list of Cook up a Story!

 Pack your English ~ The Ocean

This was also one of my favorites since it reinforces vocabulary words. It has 9 ocean themed vocabulary puzzle cards as well as 4 bingo mats with markers to practice matching vocabulary words and pictures. There is ocean themed box to store it all in.

English Builders ~Under the Sea 123

I like how there are both dot cards and number word cards to match up.
This is perfect for both of my boys since Little Thomas (age 3) is still working on counting skills and
Captain Rex (almost 5) is working on sight words and reading.

English Builders ~ Under the Sea- letter U

This game has 6 vocabulary words and sorting mats for upper and lower case letters.
If you are working on a letter of the week this would be a nice game to complement your lessons!

9 Little Fish ~ Teacher's Helpers Flannel board set
The poem for this set is so cute! This has definitely inspired me to finally make my own flannel board.
 For now we will be using this on the fridge or dishwasher by adding
 magnets to the back of each fish.

Let the Water Produce...Christian Game
Sorting mats for Sea animals & Not sea animals
picture cards and envelope

The clipart for this game is so cute! This is great for working on sorting skills!

English Builders ~ Under the sea- abc letter sort

identify and sort letters by upper and lowercase
This game was great for Captain Rex who has a firm grasp on his uppercase letters but needs some review of his lowercase letters.
