I *heart* free apps...

Firstly, apologies for my lack of posting. You know what the first few weeks back after a break are like. You need to get your head in the right space, then write a program......throw organising Kindergarten Orientation and reports into the mix and you know how I'm feeling.


I was contacted by the good people at Reading Eggs. They have the most fantastic apps for K-2 learners (I think I own most of them!). A few weeks ago they made Tap the Cat free for a week. They are doing it again but this time it is Eggy Alphabet!

This app is so great for Pre K-K kids and even for your RTI students in Year 1. Each letter of the alphabet has a range of activities to help your students with their letter id, writing and recognition.
They can trace the letter - both upper and lowercase and the best part is, it wont let you do it the wrong way. It encourages correct letter formation :)

Initial sounds recognition for each letter.

The app reads you the word and you pick which initial sound it begins with.

I have used this app in my Kinder class before and the kids loved it! Go and grab it before it goes back to paid.

Available for FREE from Monday 28th October for one week only 


  1. Thanks for the tip Brooke! We love reading eggs at our school & I will not complain about a freebie :)

  2. Woo hoo! I almost bought this just the other day. Love the Eggy range of apps so excited to add this one to my collection. Also, I'm cheap so free is always best. :)

    Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!

  3. Thanks Brooke. I'm off to get it now.
