Reading Eggs Online Reading Program

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Reading Eggs. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

When my 7-year-old began reading, he was in Kindergarten. He couldn’t seem to get enough of it and was extremely enthusiastic. For him, reading was one step closer to being a big kid and opening his life to a whole new world filled with books.

Now that my daughter is in Kindergarten, she is at that stage where she is ready to read up a storm. I was excited to learn about Reading Eggs and their multi-award winning online reading program, which just happens to be perfectly targeted for children 3-13!

Reading Eggs

Reading Eggs engages children by combining books with online reading games and activities. For children, it is so essential that they are engaged because it makes all the difference in how much they learn. With one-on-one lesson plans, educational games and e-books, Reading Eggs helps children to learn phonics and basic reading skills. As a mom, I find this to be absolutely fantastic!

Reading Eggs

Right now, Reading Eggs is offering a FREE 4-Week Trial, which allows your child to try out the program without having to sign-up immediately! With 120 reading lessons, 96 spelling lessons, 200 comprehension lessons and over 1700 online e-books, this is a seriously awesome deal. Keep in mind that the Reading Eggs App is also iPad and Android compatible, so your child can literally learn on the go as well!

Disclosure: My 3 Little Kittens will receive The Croods Blu-ray. All opinions are honest & that of My 3 Little Kittens.

The Croods         

 Available on Blu-ray & DVD October 1 

“Join the Croods on the journey of a lifetime in the epic comedy-adventure that “has the magical wonder of How To Train Your Dragon” – Jake Hamilton (Fox-TV). When their cave is destroyed, the Croods set out to explore a spectacular landscape filled with fantastic creatures, strange surprises…and a whole new world of adventure!”

Throughout their adventure, the Croods encounter tons of unique croodaceous creatures. The beauty of these peculiar animals that they had never seen before amazed audiences across the world. Below is some fun background information on two of these wild animals! 

Mousephant 

MousephantThe tiny blue mousephant is only 4 to 5 inches in length and is often preyed upon by other larger croodaceous creatures. For this reason, the mousephant uses it’s large ears to hear long distances and tiny trunk to make loud, intimidating trumpet noises.  This furry blue animal snacks on a wide array of plants and, as seen in the film, often travels in packs. 

Macawnivore  

Macawnivore

If you’re a cat person like Grug, the macawnivore would be the perfect pet for you! This 15-foot creature is a speedy hunter that has no known predators from the whole croodaceous era. The macawnivore’s colorful feather body and large saber teeth make it a beautiful sight to see in nature.

Back-to-School Tips from Monsters U

Last week was my Son’s first week of 1st grade. I have to admit the idea of him going to school full days was overwhelming for me. I mean, after all, who doesn’t want their sweet little boy to stay a baby forever? Obviously, I realized the impossibility of that goal and accepted the fact that my baby was growing up. Luckily, for him, the transition to a full day of school hasn’t been a problem.

With Monsters University coming to Blu-ray Combo on October 8th, Professor Knight has put together some fabulous back-to-school survival tips that every child can appreciate!
