Over the past month, I have been reviewing Reading Eggs with my 4 year old. He absolutely LOVES the program and asks to play it on a daily basis (sometimes several times a day). In a matter of a few days, he was trying to sound out words that contained the letters that he had been practicing. I am amazed at his progress!
So, what exactly IS Reading Eggs? It is an online literacy program for early readers ages 4-8 that builds on and reinforces phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Fun games & songs, interactive animations, learning activities, and rewards makes this innovative program work to motivate your child to learn. Want to know more? View a sample lesson.
Some things I love about Reading Eggs:
It is online, so it is accessible anywhere.
It is a secure environment, with no ads.
The program tracks your child's progress so you know what they are learning and what they need to work on.
It is highly customized to your child's learning level.
A certain number of lessons must be completed & skills mastered before the student can move on.
The student is rewarded with "eggs" after each lesson is completed, which they can spend on creating avatars, playing games, and purchasing items for their virtual playhouse.
After every 10 lessons, children complete a Mastery Quiz & can repeat lessons as many times as they like.
