The main portion of this program is called Reading Eggs. It is designed for children ages 3 to 7. It is the heart of the program, the "learning to read" part.
Each lesson consists of about 10 to 20 individual sections. Each section teaches a new way to learn the letter sound.
The lesson will introduce a letter sound and the children play "games" that reinforce the sound.
By the end of the 3rd lesson your child is reading a whole sentence!
I think that is awesome because it really gives the kids the confidence and motivation they need to want to continue learning to read. Your child feels so good, when after just a couple of lessons they are already reading!
I think this is brilliant. Your child doesn't have to go through every letter, learning it's sound, before they start to read. They may give up, or feel like they are never going to learn to read if they have to do it that way.
Another great feature of the program is that it keeps track of everything your child does. It lets you know when your child has completed a lesson, it shows you where your child's estimated reading age is, and how many phonics skills and sight words they know. You can find all of your children's information in the family dashboard.
Mathseeds follows the same format as Reading Eggs, but with numbers. Now I am assuming, since it is designed for ages 3 to 9, that it will eventually get into actual math, but at the beginning it starts with learning the number one. Just as your child has lessons with games and activities to learn their letter sounds, the child has the same for learning their numbers.
Just as with Reading Eggs, your child can take a placement test so they are put right where they need to be.
My son LOVES this. Even more than Reading Eggs Jr. I think it's because it follows the same format as the "big" school. I can't tell you how excited he gets to play this. He is learning to count, so this is the perfect accompaniment.
You just can't beat this program. Reading, comprehension, math, spelling and more, all for only $59 a year! I honestly can't believe the value.
But, that's not all! There is one more section to this program. It is called Reading Eggspress.
