  1. Hello,

    Great resources you have here! I am the owner of, and this year I am expanding into a new Preschool Product line. I have just posted a new, free, preschool printable unit called "Jungle, Jungle," that goes great with learning the letter J. This unit includes one "make-a-match," book, 12 file folder games and 3 activity mats. I would love to share it with your readers. Also I plan on adding new free printables each month this year. :) Natale
