Reading Eggs Junior
My youngest son, who is 2, uses Reading Eggs Junior. It is designed for ages 2-4. My son loves watching the fun videos that teach him a variety of skills and it is great for learning beginning reading skills. There are read-aloud books, alphabet games, songs and phonemic awareness activities. My son really enjoys watching the videos, including a cute one about a tractor.
My 5 year old son throughly enjoys Reading Eggs. It is for ages 3-7. Through various educational activities, your child will learn how to become a confident reader. They is a wide variety of interactive activities to make learning to read fun and engaging. My son really enjoys earning rewards. He loves earnign golden eggs so that he can buy items to add to his home.
My 5 year old and 8 year old use Math Seeds as a fun addition to their math curriculum. It is great at practising their math skills. Math Seeds is for ages 3-9 and it is pack full of fun educational math games to help build your children’s math skills.
My 8 year old son is now starting to use Reading Eggspress, as it is for children ages 7-13. It includes a placement test followed with lots of great reading activities. There are literacy games and online children’s books.
Both my 5 year old and 8 year old enjoyed the new program, Fast Phonics. It is for children agree 5-10. My sons loved the novelty of climbing different mountain peaks to earn prizes.
There are 20 levels where your child learns phonic skills including letter-sound recognition, blending and spelling. Each level (or peak) has over 20 activities and includes decodable books. After reading each book, your child will complete a comprehension quiz.
Tracking Progress and Worksheets
There is also a great parent interface so you can track your child’s progress through the programs along with hundreds of worksheets. However, since Fast Phonics is new, the tracking is not quite ready to be used.
The amount of resources and activities in Reading Eggs from Blake eLearning Inc is endless. It is perfect for any level of reader from ages 2-12, and I highly recommend it for your home. Even if you don’t homeschool, I would recommend Reading Eggs is a great educational tool to help encourage your child to read and practise their reading skills.
