Reading Eggs Competition

The eldest is having his first proper test at school ready!  I have nervous butterflies for him.  I know they say you should not really prepare your child at this age; he is still only six (seven soon enough!) but I would like to give a little helping hand if I can. 

We used Reading Eggs to give him a head start with his English reading; it really helped as he is flying through the books the school give for the weekly homework.  Living in Wales the focus tends to be on learning Welsh so it’s good to know that he can sill cope adequately in English too.  If he wants to read a sign, follow a written instruction or enjoy a comic he can do so without trouble.

Encouraging children to read can take a lot of patience, as you try and coax them to attempt a few words in the beginning.  I love Reading Eggs because it does take a lot of the stress out of helping your children.  The online activities are colourful, entertaining and educational.  They see it as a fun session rather than more “school” time.  Youngest is at that tricky stage where it’s hard to keep his concentration but even he is willing to attempt a whole level in one sitting.  Mainly so he gets more coins to spend customising his character but whatever it takes to motivate him to learn or I let him head to the playroom.


I have a code UKRMS you can use that gives you an additional two weeks trial, so worth a try to see how your child gets on but I also am offering one lucky winner a year’s subscription to Reading Eggs.  If you would like to win for your child and see a real difference in their reading ability then please complete the rafflecopter below by the 30th of May.
