TOS Review ~ Reading Eggs

 Photobucket

Need a little bit of fun to spice up learning to read for your children?  Check out the online program Reading Eggs.  Reading Eggs introduces beginner readers to the world of reading through interactive stories and games with fun characters. Your children aged 3-7 will learn everything from letter recognition, phonics, to reading early readers while using this program. To capture and hold a young child’s attention and make the reading experience multi-sensory there are also puzzles, games, and songs to make the process F-U-N! Do you have an older child?  No problem, Reading Eggspress {a sister part of the Reading Eggs World} is geared towards older children, aged 7-13, to encourage fluent reading.

Learning to Read with Reading Eggs:

Learning to read is an important skill for all children, we wanted to

make it an enjoyable experience for children too. Children love

working and playing on the computer and the Reading Eggs

program is all about bringing out the best in each child.

We created Reading Eggs as a unique online world where children learn to read. It supports each child’s learning by offering individual, one-to-one lessons that allow children to progress at their own rate.

When you first sign your child into Reading Eggs, the first step is for them to take an assessment test. This “test” consists of 40 questions multiple choice questions. Once your child has missed 3 questions, the test is over and your child will be placed in the appropriate level.  There are three levels of play with 4 learning boards in each level. Level 1: Lessons 1- 40 Starting Out for the beginner; Level 2: Lessons 41-80 Beginning to Read for the emerging reader; Level 3: Lessons 81-120 Building Confidence for Early Readers. No need to worry about your child skipping ahead lessons as they are locked so you follow the natural progression of the program. As your child progresses through the different levels you  can track her progress on the map.

So, you are probably wondering how much this great program costs, right?  Well, there are a few different way to purchase  Reading Eggs.  A 12 month subscription is available for $75.00;    6 month subscription is $49.95 or you can also choose monthly at $9.95 if you do not want to make such a lengthy commitment. To coincide with the levels of the program, Reading Eggs also offers book packs, however, the book packs were not a part of this review.

We had a great time using the Reading Eggs program! Montana would ask to “play” before doing her formal school work. After completing the assessment, Montana was started on the 5th learning board on lesson 41.  She has quickly progressed to lesson 50 and will be jumping to the next learning board. McKenzie loved to sit and watch and she even tried to get into the action by playing the bubble pop game.  All in all, we recommend Reading Eggs for anyone looking for a fun and exciting reading supplement.  We received a 3 month subscription for the purpose of this review and have enjoyed it.  However, I do not know if we will continue and renew our subscription, solely based on cost factor. It has nothing to do with the program because it is superb, it is just my budget. I do however, recommend you try out the 14 day free trial and see if it is right for your child.  You can’t go wrong with that.  Check out what my crewmates said about Reading Eggs, here.Photobucket
