Reading Eggs is a research-based program, which can be used at home or in school, to help children improve their reading skills in the areas of word reading and comprehension.
Reading Eggs is administered through the use of “easy to follow” online games and activities. This effective reading program makes learning to read fun, interactive, and rewarding for children ages 2–13.
How Does Reading Eggs Work?
When students work in Reading Eggs, they are provided with self-paced instruction, practice, and assessment on their level.
After a short placement test, students complete sequenced lessons that include 6 to 12 activities covering skills that address the five building blocks of reading.
1. Phonemic awareness – The ability to hear and manipulate the different sounds in words.
2. Phonics – Recognizing the connection between letters and the sounds they make.
3. Vocabulary – Understanding the meaning of words, their definitions, and their context.
4. Reading Comprehension – Understand the meaning of text – both in story books and information books.
5. Fluency – The ability to read aloud with speed, understanding and accuracy.
