My kids will tell you, reading is the “one thing” this mom takes very seriously. Again and again, I tell my children, if you can develop strong reading and comprehension skills, there is nothing you cannot do. Reading is the foundation upon which we build everything else. For that reason, I am always thrilled to find programs like Reading Eggs and Mathseeds from Reading Eggs to help my younger ones have fun while they grow!
This is not the first experience we have had as a family with the Reading Eggs program. I think my oldest (now soon to be 16) started reading in part, thanks to this program. So this is one of those things that I really enjoy having as a part of our home learning. I mean, when learning can be this fun, why not?
My youngest daughter was so thrilled to find out that she would be using this one again! Our last experience with this she and her older sister were using Fast Phonics – Watching them compare progress and compete with each other was to get to the next level was entertaining to say the least. Nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, right? They even provide progress reports so you can see exactly what they are doing and where, if at all, they need a little more help. Since my daughter will often sit down on her own and work on this program, it is certainly appreciated that I can still know where she is at.
Since it had been awhile since we used this, I was grateful for the placements tests for both Reading Eggs and Math Seeds so we could be sure to get her started in the right place. Once the test is completed, all she has to do is follow the path on her map as she works through all sorts of fun activities that help her grow her skills in reading and in math.
I know my little lady really loves easy this whole program is to use. She is quite independent! Being able to switch from math to reading to phonics all by herself really makes her feel so good. The fact the lessons are all super fun definitely encourages learning. Some days, truthfully, I have to tell her that it is time to be done. If that isn’t the sign of a fabulous program, I don’t know what is.
One of her absolute favorites right now are the Driving Tests. She can choose from sight words, Letters and Sounds or Content Words and race around the track. Wht a fun way to practice some basic skills!
There is also a section full of puzzles that can be fun to play. There is the Puzzle of the Day or you can choose from a bunch of options on the gallery. Practice color recognition, or have fun with What is It? Animal recognition is fun too. There is a timer at the bottom of the screen – see how many you can get right. 🙂
For your little ones (ages 2-4) they can enjoy Reading Eggs Junior and work their way up to Reading Eggs and Math Seeds (both are recommended for ages 3-9). Fast Phonics is recommended for ages 5-10 and the Reading Eggspress is an amazing treat for older kids (ages 7-13). There really is something here for ever age and stage or reading.
This is such an amazing program for learning and reinforcing the many skills our kids need to learn and grow. I cannot say enough how much fun my little lady is having in all the different areas that are a part of this program. Be sure to check it out – start your free 30 day trial and see for yourself how fun learning can be!
