What to Buy
According to the Children’s Reading Foundation, 2 out of every 10 children enter kindergarten with skills two to three years lower than their grade level, and another 2 start school with a one-year disadvantage. Furthermore, some 34% of students are below basic reading level in the 4th Grade, according to the U.S. National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) while another 31% are below the proficient reading level.
With these stunning statistics, it’s no wonder why in recent years educators have been prompted to find novel ways to significantly increase literacy rates in US school-aged children, in particular, using technology granted that many children are now using computers and mobile devices (which, ironically, may have contributed to the drop in reading levels).
Blake eLearning is a highly experienced team of teachers, educational writers, animators and web developers that specializes in creating high quality, innovative literacy products for schools and educators in all major English-speaking markets and their renowned Reading Eggs platform focuses on a core reading curriculum of skills and strategies essential for sustained reading success. It completely supports what children learn at school to help improve children’s (ages 2 to 13) literacy results.
To date, Reading Eggs has helped over 10 million children worldwide learn to read with 91% of parents reporting a noticeable improvement within weeks. Moreover, the great benefit of the entire suite of Reading Eggs components is that children can learn much of the material working independently with little supervision from parents. This reduces the workload for parents significantly while ensuring that children receive solid educational content.
To find out what exactly Reading Eggs can offer each age group, visit ReadingEggs.com to check out an overview of its various levels, including Reading Eggs (for ages 3 to 7), Reading Eggspress (ages 7 to 13), and Fast Phonics (ages 5 to 10). It also offers extensive information on its other related departments (opened on a separate website) Reading Eggs Junior (for toddlers ages 2 to 4) and Mathseeds (a visual-based core math program for ages 3 to 9).
The platform’s main platform, Reading Eggs aims to teach children in Pre-School to 2nd Grade to read via structured, one‑on‑one lessons that teach subjects including recognition and writing of letters, phonics, spelling, sight words, vocabulary, comprehension, suffixes, prefixes, and plurals.
By incorporating Reading Eggs into your child’s daily routine, you will be helping to prepare them for the same structured learning they will need to succeed and feel confident at school. Reading Eggs has 120 lessons, 2500 online books, and over 170 other activities in the form of fun interactive games, animation videos, songs, and more. Children become a part of the activities by creating their own Avatar and either start at the beginning or take a Placement Quiz to start at the correct level (which parents can adjust at their discretion) and move through the lessons at their own pace, repeating them if they wish.
To further motivate the students, Reading Eggs also has a built-in Rewards System. Students earn golden eggs as they complete lessons which they can use to purchase game playing opportunities or to purchase virtual store merchandise for their avatar or virtual room.
Meanwhile, Fast Phonics is a systematic, synthetic phonics program based on proven scientific research designed to help emergent and struggling readers build key phonics skills to help children become stronger readers. The program includes 20 fun‑filled levels called a “Mountain Peak” containing a set of letters where children learn key phonics skills including letter‑sound recognition, blending, and spelling.
Reading Eggspress on the other hand, expands literacy development for children from Grade 1 to 6 by helping them learn to read for meaning and enjoyment. The Reading Eggspress program promotes the reading of full-length books, word recognition, spelling skills, and reading comprehension through interactive activities, children’s e-books, and literacy games. Lessons include teaching a reading skill and then asking questions where the children apply the skill. Toward the end of each lesson, children read (or listen to via text-to-speech) brief e-books and answer questions.
In addition to the core lessons, the Bonus Material section includes two printable activity sheets for each lesson primarily dealing with vocabulary, spelling, and word usage.
An additional benefit of the Reading Eggs platform is its applicability for home learning curricula through its award‑winning Reading Program for Homeschoolers, a comprehensive online reading curriculum based on solid scientific research, with personalized, one‑on‑one lessons that match your child's ability.
On the parents’ end, the Parent User Guide under “Bonus Materials” on the parent’s dashboard offers parents a detailed scope and sequence schedule for both Reading Eggs and Reading Express programs. Parents can access children’s progress reports through the parent dashboard and download the hundreds of activity sheets that correspond with the lessons in the program. Under Bonus Materials, they can also download homeschool guides and books from the Reading Eggs library to partially cover topics for science and social studies.
Subscription to Reading Eggs is available via monthly and annual subscription packages (which also include access to its math program partner Mathseeds) as well as by individual module packages. Monthly Subscription for Reading Eggs & Mathseeds costs $9.99 a month billed monthly while the Yearly Subscription is priced at $69.99 a year billed annually (reg. price $119.99, equates to $5.83 per month).
Both plans include: a 30-Day FREE Trial, Reading Eggs, Reading Eggs Junior, Fast Phonics, Reading Eggspress, Mathseeds, detailed assessment reports, 2500 e-books, 500+ printable worksheets, and access for up to 4 children.
