Pickle says…I am four (five next month) and have just gone into my last year of Early Years School. In Wales, we start part time early years (nursery) school the term after our third birthday, so I have been going for a little while! I started reading earlier this year, and love it. Mummy is really keen to find ways to keep me interested and learning more. What can we use? Say hello to Reading Eggs!
Reading Eggs is a whole program of online learning to recognise letters and read with tons of fun things to do.
As I have already said, I love reading at school. I started full time school in January this year. I love ‘working’ on the laptop, or Mummy’s iPad and choosing what I want to do.
Mummy set me off on Reading Eggs Level for 3 – 7 year olds. There is a Reading Eggs Junior Level for ages 2-4 as well and Reading Eggspress for ages 7-13. I had to answer lots of questions, and pick out different letters and words. I was really happy when I got it right. When I finished, Reading Eggs told me I should start on Map 8. I have a reading age of 5.5 years, and know 150 out of 237 phonic skills! There were books, activities and more listed for me. I wanted to read a book first, I could choose if I wanted the words read to me by Reading Eggs or not, and I wanted to. I then repeated the words.
I wanted to do the quiz at the end, and on my first go I got 70%. I tried again and passed with 80%!
I old Mummy it was so much fun, and asked can we do more tomorrow?
I have been on Reading Eggs almost every evening – Mummy and I like to look at it before I go to bed. I play games, paying for some with the Golden Eggs I have collected from completing different activities and books.
I love Reading Eggs because the challenges / activities set are just the right level for Pickle. Not too easy, but not too difficult either. I love his reaction when he gets a question / word / letter etc right, it makes him so happy and strive to learn more.
I love the app which mirrors the website so Pickle can find his way round whether he is on the laptop, my phone or iPad.
I can see Pickles progress easily – what books he has read, how many Golden Eggs he has collected and his reading and spelling progress.
We love Reading Eggs and all that it offers!
