Reading Eggs is the place where children learn to read. Here can be found a range of ebooks and other products for teaching children between the ages of three and thirteen the basics of reading and writing. They really make the learning process a memorable one by using lively animations accompanied by catchy music, and children are invited to sing along with the music.
Reading Eggs is now available as an app on the iPad and Android OS. The various appisodes include:
Time Children learn how to tell time by watching alarm clocks go off and seeing events happen as promised; for instance, the words Ill call you in thirty minutes followed by an advancing clock and one person calling another.
Word Snap involves learning 180 keywords by matching them with images
Times Tables What could be better for children than an app that teaches reading and mathematics at the same time? After all, the two skills are not completely independent of each other. There are other math appisodes, including Subtract to 20 and Numbers to 100.
Eggy Phonics Many parents will perhaps find this one to be superior to even the old Hooked on Phonics program.
Each of these is suitable for children of a certain age. Reading Eggs programs may also be used in the classroom.
Functional illiteracy defined by Philip C. Schechty as not knowing how to read, write and do math well enough to manage daily living and employment tasks that require reading skills beyond a basic level is a major problem in North America. Canadian parents should get Reading Eggs for their young one. Children can learn well if motivated to do so from an early age. Besides, the company provides a two-week free trial, and six-month and year-long subscription options are available.
