Eggsceptional Reading!

By

“The more you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” ~ Dr. Seuss

In our house we read.  I read to gain knowledge and for personal enjoyment.  As a parent, I read to my children.  My older children read for themselves but they are also encouraged, from a young age, to read to their younger siblings. I read to the family, chapters at a time, as a series, instead of watching TV.  The younger children see us with books, they hear stories of adventure, courage, excitement, and mishap.  They can sit in their bedroom and be in Africa on a safari, at the same time, or sit in the living room, together, and travel back in time to a Little House on the PrairieAll of this cultivates a desire in the young ones to want to read on their own.

Reading Eggs is an eggsceptional  interactive, online reading program.

 

 

This program is developed by teachers, educational writers, animators, and web designers.  It is built on a core curriculum of skills, using a sequential series of lessons.  The focus of Reading Eggs is for children ages 4-7, with the addition of Eggspress geared for 7-13 years old.  There are over 100 lessons available now, plus they continue to grow.  The brand new Storylands opened March 2, 2012, with the first 20 lessons of Clinker Castle!  My son agrees this is a big deal!

 

 

My youngest daughter loves Reading Eggs!

Her personalized, eggsploring avatar walks through Reading Eggs World as she works her way through lessons and quizzes.  Upon completion of a set of lessons, she is rewarded.  Special eggs hatch and reveal a new critter that is added to the zoo.  The program is student-paced.  If there is any difficulty understanding or retaining a lesson it can be repeated as many times as necessary, with no penalty or negative judgement.

Lesson activity – put the words in the correct order to form a sentence.

Songs, games, educational activities, and golden egg rewards, make for eggstra FUN!

Game time!

There is an Assessment Test available for each child.  40 questions, that will determine the best place to start your student.  My son is happy being an Eggpress eggsplorer!

An Assessment Test question

He says the animation is eggscellent!  The lessons are fun, but he is still challenged and he’s learning!  There are many stories of fact and fiction that keep his attention.  Just like his sister, he enjoys furnishing a house for his avatar, shopping, and generally playing in the Reading Eggs World.

I like the parent’s reports that I receive, keeping me up to date on their progress and accomplishments!  I eggspect to use Reading Eggs for years, especially because they eggspect to continue to expand and improve.
