Reading Eggs TOS Crew Review

Pin It Now!
   TOS Crew members were given a 3 month trial of an online reading comprehension program called Reading Eggs. This is an online interactive program that helps children ages 3-7 get started with finding a love for reading. There are games and colorful characters and sound recognition. The children become captivated by songs, puzzles and games all while learning alphabet recognition all the way to reading early reader books. The characters are fun and do a wonderful job of engaging the children into reading.
 There is another component of the Reading Eggs World and this is called Reading Eggspress, this is for older children that have some fluency with reading but need to build on their reading skills. This is perfect for children ages 7-13.

  Reading Eggs was designed by Educational Experts and focuses on core concepts and site words.  Children will enjoy using Reading Eggs as they work on their own individualized reading experience as they work at their own pace, not feeling rushed or overwhelmed.  There are 100 reading lessons for the "Eggsplorers" to work through as they continue on the reading journey. There are more lessons in the works for the older age range of kids.

  Here is a glimpse into the world of Reading Eggs so you can get a feel of what is in store for your young reader...

  As your children work to explore Reading Eggs World, they will work on stories that are on the year 2-6 level and earn online game rewards for completing lessons and quizzes. As your little reader ventures through stories both fact and fiction they will travel the Reading Eggs World by the online map. As they complete each map they have a quiz to take. Reading Eggs Parent reporting system then emails the progress and quiz results to the parents, so you always know how well your children are fairing in the land of reading.

As they complete maps by taking and passing the Quizzes they will unlock a new map to explore. Here is a sample of what the reading test looks like.

  There is more to Reading Eggs than just an online world, they offer companion books a writing workbooks.
While these added workbooks and companion books are optional and do not need to be purchased to use the online Reading Eggs World, they do help to reinforce the lessons and principals learned and used online.

There is a 14-day free trial available, so there is no risk with Reading Eggs. Subscriptions are available in the following options:
•12 months for $75 (add a second or third child at 50% off)

•6 months for $49.95 (add a second or third child at 50% off)

•Monthly for $9.95
To learn more about Reading Eggs, be sure to visit their website.  Also be sure to check out the reviews from the other TOS Crewmates and see what they are saying about Reading Eggs. I do not have children in the Reading Eggs age range so my review was simply informational, but many of the crew members used this program with their kids that fit perfectly in the recommended age range.
