Sammi has really taken off in her reading over the last few months. I find her around the house reading a book or magazine almost as often as I find her playing with her siblings. She’s truly discovered the joy of getting lost in a story.
Now it’s Elli’s turn. She’s in Kindergarten this year and is gearing up to become an independent reader. She’s starting to recognized some words and is getting more comfortable sounding out words. She’s not always that interested in reading. But she definitely loves being online.
I recently learned about a new online reading program called Reading Eggs. They are currently offering a free two week trial where you don’t have to enter a credit card to start your trial. I love that! I’m excited now that we’re home from Orlando and Universal Studios so I can explore Reading Eggs with Elli. Reading Eggs focuses on a core reading curriculum of skills and strategies essential for sustained reading success and is suitable for children aged 3 through 12.
Reading Eggs began in the United States and Canada in 2011. Since that time, it has gained more than 500,000 subscribers and presented more than 15 million lessons in North America. That’s a track record that leads me to believe it’s worth looking into. I’ll be checking out Reading Eggs this week. I look forward to sharing our experience with it.
