Promotion for Reading Eggs
One of the most important skills your child can have is being able to read. Literacy is a key factor in success at school, and is also a way to learn and discover new things and to develop imagination.
Being able to read contributes to an increased vocabulary and the development of self-worth – struggling with reading can be isolating and lead to low self-esteem.
The essentials of learning to read
There are five key areas that children need to cover in order to learn to read successfully – phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency. Unless you have specific training, it can be tricky to know how to start your child on their reading journey.
Reading Eggs has developed a multi-award winning online reading programme that covers each of the five key areas of reading, and makes learning to read fun and motivating for children aged 2 to 13 years. Join 10 million users worldwide and claim your free trial at www.readingeggs.co.nz.
How Reading Eggs works
The Reading Eggs programme has been developed by a highly experienced team of teachers, educational writers, animators and web developers. It has been designed to be used at home – after all that is where so much of your child’s early learning takes place.
Using a carefully structured sequence of one-on-one lessons, activities and e-books, the individualised, self-paced programme gradually builds reading confidence while rewarding children’s progress. Now that’s positive use of screen time!
Phonics is a method that is widely promoted by researchers, literacy experts and teachers, and is the most effective way to teach children how to read. Explicit phonics instruction teaches children how to make the connection between the letters in words and the sounds they make. Without this understanding (combined with learning some words by ‘sight’) reading will only progress slowly.
The Reading Eggs programme is made up of structured, systematic and sequential lessons and activities and is based on the most up-to-date research and learning principles to teach essential phonics skills and sight words.
Even if your child is off to a great start, Reading Eggs can help continue to build their confidence and their key literacy skills.
