We have loved the reading eggs program so much, I was
thrilled to hear they have physical book packs to further support and encourage
learning. Eldest was very excited when
the package arrived containing the Mega Book Pack (Stage 1 and Stage 2
books). These are excellent resource
materials, I was impressed with how much was included, in addition to lots of
little reading books you have activity books, flashcards and stickers.
the online program the hatching of the egg at the end of a lesson is one of the
highlights for my eldest. He was very
pleased to see the stickers included were the characters from the eggs
online. Once you have completed the
books you can then add the sticker over the egg on a handy poster. You can then proudly display their
achievements on their bedroom wall, to further encourage them, showering them
with praise! Reading Eggs is also a
good way to keep me on track, supporting him in a suitable fashion, with
materials pitched at the right level, as left to my own devices I could start
unrealistically, pitching it too difficult for him (war and peace anyone?).
set costs £69.95 (alongside a subscription) and given how much eldest has got
out of this program in its entirety I would definitely recommend it. As a parent I was at a loss where to start
with teaching him to read, obviously I had plenty of books and would read to
him regularly but Reading Eggs gives more structure and incentives to keep
learning. I love that the activity
books help with their writing too, so they will not only be confident readers
but have improved their handwriting too.
Everything is colourful and targeted well to children 4-7 (for the Mega
Book Pack), so they will have no problem maintaining their interest and
concentration. The activities are quite
broad too; colouring, tracing, dot-to-dot, finding puzzles etc so lots of
Eggs really works, when my son’s Welsh primary school start English
reading, I think they will be pleasantly surprised with how advanced he already
you Reading Eggs for giving my son something fun and educational to do whilst
off from school with chicken pox. Next week we will review their app Eggy Alphabet.
