Learn to read online with Reading Eggs

Have you guys heard about Reading Eggs? If so, then that's great but if not yet then you would want to check it out at http://readingeggs.com/. Reading Eggs as a unique online world where children learn to read. It supports each child’s learning by offering individual, one-on-one lessons that allow children to progress at their own rate. I have two toddlers ages 5 and 4. Reading is one of the fundamental skills that every children has to learn. My 5 year old son I would say, can read simple three or 4 letter words. He knows how to connect the letter sounds which is the basic in reading. He sometimes can read clustered word. He still need to improve his reading and also he needs to develop his confidence. My 4 year old however, is kind of lazy and have short learning span. She needs different approach in teaching her how to read. She can name the letter names and sounds of the alphabet and can count numbers from 1 to 100. She is also capable of writing the letters and her name of course with family name but get easily tired. Her consistency and retention is my problem as she prefers to play than do her lessons. I prioritized my 4 year old daughter when I signed up for a free trial in Reading Eggs. In that Free subscription includes access to all three programs Reading Eggs, Reading Eggspress and their newest program - Mathseeds.com, The Fun Way to Grow Your Child's Math Skills. This highly interactive world of learning will teach Justine the key reading and math skills needed for success at school. So, far Justine are enjoying the different interactive learning features of Reading Eggs. Once she gets tired of her lesson, she'll go to the playroom and do sketching, games, children song and many more. Actually, when she started the program there was a test that evaluate the level of learning of a child. Justine took the test and she jumped to map 5. But I let her start the map 1 for me to see if she knew all the letter sounds, and I was happy with the outcome. Right now she is currently at lesson 46 at map 5. She finds it a little difficult though because some of the activity involves sentence construction so she is dealing it one step at a time. I am planning of going back to previous lesson or lower map for mastery. I have also added Jake's in the program but he only had few days subscription. As I've said, Jake can read some of the words so he is ahead of Justine. Right now Jake's is sharing with Justine's lesson because his subscription was over. That first day Jake did his lesson he finished most of the lesson. Reading Eggs will send your progress report of your child and this was Jake's report during that very first weeks he done his lesson.
Jake and Justine are sharing one computer and a lot of times there were complications, and fights of who's turn to use the computer. Jake's subscriptions finished quickly without him having the chance to enjoy the whole duration of his subscription. Well, I did not let them used the computer for a week for some reason. Anyway, I like all the features of Reading Eggs and their program are so easy to navigate. I have tried before the ABC mouse, i wasn't happy and did not even bother to finish my free trial. It's confusing whereas in Reading Eggs, it is very easy to go to different area of learning. Even a child can learn easily how to navigate from their dashboard to the lessons, playroom and other programs. Here is what you expect if you decide to try Reading Eggs free trial. You can also read in my previous review a testimonial of other parents about Reading Eggs.
