Make Reading FUN with “Reading Eggs”
Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor compensated in any other way.
I don’t let my kids do too much stuff online and we are SUPER careful about apps, so when we were given the chance to review Blake eLearning Inc and a 12 month subscription to Reading Eggs they were very excited! We received a subscription for each of our 3 older kids and there was plenty for each of them to enjoy!
What is Reading Eggs?
This is an online program with absolutely TONS of things to do to enhance your child’s learning. There are several different options within Reading Eggs and you get access to ALL of them! You can choose from Mathseeds, Reading Eggs, Reading Eggs Junior, Fast Phonics and Reading Eggspress.
How we used this online program…
Reading Eggs has a downloadable app so I downloaded that on my Android phone. For our tablets which are Kindle Fires we had to use the browser to access the program. We also accessed it on our desktop. My kids would all use it on different devices at the same time with no issues. There is one main login then you click the child’s name. It keeps track of their individual progress.
Lilly (3) used Reading Eggs Junior which is designed for ages 2-4. She practiced learning letters, shapes, colors and more! She also loved Mathseeds and worked on numbers. Her favorite part was the craft section and the learning videos.
Jake (9) used all the programs. His favorite was Fast Phonics and he enjoyed completing the challenges and then earning points to get to buy stuff for his online home. He really liked the Science experiments on videos.
Gabe (6) used Mathseeds, Reading Eggs Junior and Fast Phonics. His favorite was the Mathseeds and he also loved the Science experiments! He loved making slime.
What I liked about this program…
One of my favorite things is that there are no commercials! Seriously, this is so fantastic for parents. So many apps are just constant advertising. Ugh!
I also love that you can use this either on an app or browser. This is incredibly helpful if you don’t have a compatible table or are on a desktop.
I also love the one login! I despise having multiple logins for one program. This eliminates the hassle of logging in each child separately and you can easily switch between children.
Its very simple to setup each child in the system and you can see their progress easily in each program just by clicking on their name and progress.
Should you choose this program?
We have gotten to review Reading Eggs before and their workbooks and have enjoyed those. The Reading Eggs online program in my opinion is extremely thorough and my kids LOVE doing it! There are books to read or be read to, printables, games, videos and tons of multi-sensory learning activities. I think its a fantastic option for homeschool parents to supplement their children’s learning.
One caveat, this is NOT a Christian program so there may be things in it that you do not agree with. Like anything else, I advise observing your children as they use it and discussing any negatives you run across 🙂 That being said, I’m very pleased with the program!
