How Does it Work?
The Reading Eggs program has been designed to get children reading as quickly as possible. To do this, we initially need to focus on the sounds and high frequency words that will enable children to read their first simple words and sentences. We want children to learn how letters make words and how these words can make sentences – sentences that they can read. This is why the program does not progress in alphabetical order as Reading Eggs is all about learning the skills and strategies that are important when you are learning to read. Very early on in the program children learn that what they read has meaning and it makes sense. They also experience real success – children read their first story book in lesson 9 – and this is what learning to read is all about, reading books for meaning and enjoyment.
Our Reading Eggs Experience
My kids are 10 and 13. I thought that Reading Eggs would be a little too “childish” for them or more for younger kids. But they really liked it. I was surprised at the fun they really did have with the program.
My son, the 13 year old, could have done without it but I wanted to get his opinion on it. He agreed that it is better for younger kids but that it did help him with some things that he had trouble with.
My daughter is 10 and LOVED this program. She’s an advanced reader. It was nice to see her have fun and still be challenged a bit at times. She said she really liked the animation and the look of everything.
All in all we loved it. While it may be better for younger readers, or those that need a little boost, Reading Eggs is a GREAT resource for homeschool families!
