My daughter just started Kindergarten this year, so she is still in the early stages of learning to read. While she’s got a pretty good handle on it- she’s smart like her mom, after all!- I am always looking for creative and fun ways to really help her master literacy. Reading is so important to my kids’ futures and I want to make sure they have all the tools they need to succeed in life.
I try to make sure my daughter has plenty of opportunities to read. We make regular trips to the library to pick out new books. I encourage her to help out in the kitchen, which helps her skills when she reads recipes and ingredients to me. Now, I added a new great tool to my literacy arsenal: Reading Eggs!
Reading Eggs: Teach Kids to Read the Fun Way
Reading Eggs is an engaging online learning tool that helps teach kids to read and master literacy skills. From letter recognition to parts of grammar, kids ages 3-13 get a rich educational experience with a heavy dose of fun. Kids just learning to read visit the Reading Eggs section, while older kids use Reading Eggspress to build on their skills. They even have a section called MathSeeds to help kids master their math skills.
Since my daughter is still in the early stages of reading, we logged into Reading Eggs. This part of the site features 120 lessons to teach kids to read and 96 lessons to help with spelling. My daughter and husband curled up together to spend quality time exploring the site. Take a look at this video to see Reading Eggs in action.
As you can see, my little princess had a great time learning to read with Reading Eggs! She’ll definitely be using it often in the future. She is trying to build up her Egg rewards to decorate her house just right. Reading Eggs has a 60-question test that measures your child’s skills, so they can start out at the right level. I love this feature because it means your child won’t spend time doing lessons on things she’s already mastered. Kids get bored when they’re not challenged, so it’s great that they can easily skip these lessons.
