Elli has loved online learning websites so when I saw the opportunity to review Reading Eggs, I jumped on it! Not to mention I love the process of learning to read and wanted to see a new website’s approach to teaching reading skills.
Elli excitedly watched me set up the account and get it ready for her to take over. The program was intuitive enough that she needed very little guidance to get going and to enjoy her reading lessons and activities. Here’s a look at her first few moments on Reading Eggs.
She’s also enjoyed the games and review activities. I like how it has them practice again and again by giving them a slightly different task each time so it doesn’t feel repetitive. I especially liked the challenge to do it faster the next time. Elli loves a good race against the clock!
Overall she has enjoyed the Reading Eggs site. She asks to do it unprompted. She prefers to play the games and activities as opposed to doing the lessons. But all the games and activities have a learning component to them so it’s still time well spent.
When I’m looking at online programs that I’m paying for my kids to use, there are a few things that really seal the deal for me. I want my kids engaged in what is offered. I want everything they are able to do to have a learning component. And I want them to like it enough to ask to get on the site. Reading Eggs fits all these criteria! Plus I love that the two week trial does not require a credit card. You don’t have to remember to cancel a subscription if it’s not a good fit. But you will certainly remember to get a subscription when your child wants to continue using the site after the trial is over.
What do YOU look for in a subscription-based learning website?
