Phonics and Reading With McGuffey Kids App Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Recently, I was allowed to try out the Phonics and Reading with McGuffey app for kids. 
I enjoy trying out new educational kids apps with my five year old because he's very into learning games. He's also very good at maneuvering around computer programs on his own, especially since he can read at a level well beyond his years.

My Thoughts on This Product

I like that your child or children can create their own profile and simply click on their name to continue their own lessons

Here is my son, using the app. There are so many different levels/lessons to pick from

Here's a picture of some of the programs that can be accessed:
Letter sounds, new words, phonics flashcards, phonics blender, lesson illustration, reading practice, quiz, spelling practice, sight word drilling, and more.

I think that this app is terrific. My son can navigate each page and lesson very easily. He hasn't asked for my help once.  My little boy has completed several of the lessons and seems to really like doing them. It's nice that he can learn at his own pace, which is how he learns best. Perfect since he is being home schooled.
This app has helped him so much with his spelling, which is excellent. He is pronouncing several words better too. As for his reading, he's been reading way past the 1st grade reading level for over a year or so. It's a good refresher though. 
This app is worth a shot if your little ones are having trouble reading, spelling, pronouncing words, or any other phonics issues, so yes, I highly recommend.

Phonics and Reading With McGuffey is available for purchase on Google Play, or through the Apple Store. This is great because then you can download and play on your android device, some smart phones, iPad, Kindle Fire, or iPod Touch. Perfect for learning at home or on the go, at appointments, when running errands, and such.

Learn More About The App or if your child may need a more advanced set of lessons, there is another available.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
