Reading Eggs

Putting the F-U-N into learning to read.

Reading Eggs is a brilliant site for helping your little ones (ages 3-8) with their reading. Designed to be fun, as well as educational, Reading Eggs combines colourful animations with educational tools that completely support the curriculum your child will be learning at school.


Interactive animations, games, songs and rewards make this an educational site that your kids will enjoy so much, they won’t even notice that as they are playing they are learning! Through a series of rewards, each child should feel the rush of achievement, away from the threat of comparison with others. Once you are signed up your child will have access to Reading Eggs World, where they will be able to go on a wide range of interactive adventures and activities, learning as they go.


The site works on a subscription basis, but there is a 14 day free trial available, so you can try before you buy. A placement quiz will ensure that each child starts at the correct level. The About Reading Eggs section explains fully how the lessons work in terms of the different areas of phonics and phonemic awareness, sight words, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension, so take the time to read through this if you can. After 10 lessons, children complete a Mastery Quiz; this provides you, the parent, with a report about their progress.


Reading Eggs has been developed by a highly qualified team of teachers, educational writers, animators and web developers; suffice to say, your little learner is in expert hands, and will be reading before you can say ABC!
