All About Reading Level 1 Giveaway


I was blessed to receive the All About Reading Level 1 Kit to review and have been using it with Krash. We were also sent the Deluxe Reading Interactive Kit and love it all!

So far I LOVE what I have seen.  Seems to be the perfect combination of phonics, vocabulary, fluency, & comprehension.  I believe ALL are important.  You also know I believe sight words are an important part of learning to read and I just love what AAR has done with the teaching of sight words.  The words that cannot be sounded out have a little “bad guy” printed on them with a sign that says “Rule Breaker” ~ how cute is that?  It reminds the student that some words don’t follow the rules we learn and need to be memorized by sight from the very beginning.  The first Rule Breaker word is “the” and appears in lesson 3.  Krash loves the rule breaker words!

I also just started All About Reading Level Pre-1 with Ladybug last week!  Krash is joining in with us as a solid review of the Big 5 Skills.  You can see regular updates of our experience with All About Reading Level Pre 1 in my Tot School posts.

Wondering if YOUR child is ready to learn to read?   Read this article, “Checklist: Is Your Child Ready to Learn to Read?” for some wonderful information!

If you have specific questions about your particular situation/child, I highly recommend contacting Marie from the All About Learning website, she is wonderful and helpful!

You will be seeing my ongoing review of All About Reading Level 1 and many details in my regular Kindergarten with Krash posts.

I also describe why we chose to review AAR in the FAQ section of my “Current Curriculum” post.

Table Talkers & A Year of Sugar Scrubs

You may remember my raving review about the eBook, Table Talkers, written by Erin from In Between Laundry.

We are still loving Table Talkers, and it has become the tool that helps my Krash to focus on eating.  If he isn’t eating-he can’t join in with our fun! We don’t play every night, but it has stayed a regular thing for us.  We even switched up some of the games over the holiday season to do Christmas versions, it was fun coming up with our own games based on the ones in the eBook!

I am excited that Erin is partnered with 1+1+1=1 as a blog sponsor and is offering another chance to win not only her Table Talkers eBook, but also this amazing eBook, A Year of Sugar Scrubs
Erin sent me the eBook to review and it was simple and even looked like something I could handle!  Check out these pictures of gift examples she has on her site:
What amazing gifts these would make for those of you who like to make creative gifts to give!

The eBook contains,
  • instructions and helpful tips at the beginning
  • 2 unique recipes per month, a total of 24
  • printable gift tags to include for gift giving…

If you’d rather not wait to see if you win, you can purchase Table Talkers for just $4.99

You can purchase A Year of Sugar Scrubs here for just $3.99
