This is my first review for The Homeschool Lounge and it was done on a wonderful online program for younger kids called Reading Eggs. Reading Eggs is geared for kids ages 4 – 7 and involves 120 big lessons. They also have Reading Eggs Worlds for kids ages 6 – 8 who already know the reading basics.
Want to know what Reading Eggs is exactly? Here is some information taken from their website:
Learn skills: Children complete animated online lessons where they learn essential reading skills. The variety of fun activities within each lesson provides the repetition needed for these skills to become part of the child’s long term memory.
Read books: Children gain confidence by reading books online that only contain words they have already learnt in the program. For further reinforcement, they can also read the real books at home if they have the Reading Eggs book packs.
Earn rewards: Children earn golden eggs as rewards for work completed. They can use these eggs to buy reward games.
Quiz: After 10 lessons, children complete a Mastery Quiz. This provides you with a report of what your child is learning. Children can repeat the online lessons as many times as they like. Young children enjoy repetition and it has great benefits too, as it helps them to learn.
The cost of the program = 1 year: $75, 6 months: $49.95, monthly $9.95.
WE LOVED IT!
Here are some screen shots of some of what we experienced:
I have worked with training dogs for many years and I saw many similarities with higher level dog training, and this reading program. Mostly – repetition in many different areas...looking at and choosing the same letters but in different scenarios. My ds4 LOVES this program and learned a lot in the little bit of time we’ve had to utilize it.
They offer a 14-Day *FREE* trial…to try it out, click HERE.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
