Making Learning to Read Fun with Reading Eggs
This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.
My 5 year old has launched head on into learning to read in kindergarten this year so when I was offered the opportunity to look into Reading Eggs a little closer I was very interested to see what my son thought. My oldest son taught himself how to read and has always been an extremely avid reader who had to work very little at strengthening his reading skills. My youngest son, however, was not blessed with this gift and although he likes to read I’m finding special incentives are really help to drive his enthusiasm for hard work when it comes to reading.
I knew Reading Eggs would be a great captivator for him – both fun and educational. It’s been a great site for not only my 5 year old but also my 7 year old (there are sections for up to age 13!)
The site is split into 3 different learning areas:
Reading Eggs (3-7 yrs learn to read)
Reading Eggspress (7-13 yrs reading skills)
Mathseeds (3-6 yrs math skills)
Reading Eggs is geared for ages 3-13 years old to work at their own pace and not only incorporates games into reading but also songs, “golden eggs” and other rewards. The more my son works at his reading lessons the more “golden eggs” he earns! It has really been a good motivator for him to choose Reading Eggs over playing other games or entertainment. Plus it helps me not feel like I need to push him to read as hard because he is choosing to work on it himself! My 7 year old even begs to get on it.
