Reading is a subject that all of my kids have struggled with conquering. Through the years, teachers and others have all recommended giving Reading Eggs a try with the kids. I have signed up for their free 4 Week Trial! in the past but didn't see major improvements. Thanks to being a part of the Homeschool Review Crew though, I've had the chance to try them out for a longer period of time.
About Reading Eggs
The online reading education – Reading Eggs for kids ages 2-13. There are four different Reading Eggs levels to choose from. Each one uses a bit different methods to teach the kids.
Reading Eggs Junior focuses on pre-reading skills for toddlers ages 2-4. Reading Eggs is for kids ages 3-7 and it primarily focuses on all of the necessary reading, vocabulary, and comprehension skills needed to move on. Reading Eggspress is a more organized system that focuses a lot on comprehension for students ages 7-13.
Reading Eggs is affordable at only $49.95 for six months and $59.00 for a year. If you need to add on more kids you can get them at 50% off ($29.50) with the yearly membership. There are other plans that are available as well so you may want to check out Reading Egg's pricing page.
Like I said, the first time I tried Reading Eggs it didn't make a huge difference. However, since we got the chance to review it again for an even longer period of time, I can say that I see a difference with Zeva's reading. Zeva has had major growth in her reading abilities since she's started using Reading Eggs.
She loves doing her online reading lessons. She thinks it's “play” time when she gets to do it. Reading Eggs does have a way of feeling like you're playing a game as you're progressing through the lessons.
Delbert, on the other hand, endured these lessons. He didn't seem to be gaining as much benefit from using this program as I had hoped. Of course, Delbert doesn't respond well to these kinds of programs. He has to have no distractions in order to really advance.
I personally feel that this program was completely kid friendly. I noticed that at Delbert's age group it became more mature in the way it felt. I respected that bit of detail about this online reading program.
Reading Eggs is trying to make life easier for the homeschool family by giving them a homeschooling guide to follow. As you can see the guide provides parents with lesson plans for language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. For me, I find this to be quite helpful because there are times when I wonder if I'm covering everything Zeva needs. This guide is available for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades.
