Reading Eggs is designed for 4-8 year olds who want to learn to read. The program begins at an absolute beginner level, so children need no prior knowledge to start. Children can learn to read using this program.
The Reading Eggs program has been developed by a highly experienced team of teachers, educational writers, animators and web developers. It focuses on a core reading curriculum of skills and strategies which are essential for sustained reading success. It completely supports what children learn at school and will help to improve your child’s or students’ results.
Yes, Reading Eggs starts at the beginning and teaches every skill your child needs to learn to read. Children as young as three can use the program. With younger children, it’s best for lessons to be done more than once as young children love repetition and replaying lessons will really support their learning. Reading Eggs lessons can be replayed as often as you like.
Some children don’t enjoy reading because of early failures, while others struggle to retain the many skills and concepts needed to become successful readers. Working on the computer is a great way for your child or student to build skills. The computer never judges them. They can progress at their own rate and if they are having problems, lessons can be repeated as many times as they want. The program has been successful with children with learning difficulties, autistic spectrum disorder, and other struggling readers.
For children with reading difficulties, repetition is one of the keys to success and the Reading Eggs games and activities are fun to do, so children will enjoy repeating them..
The program is a sequential series of lessons that starts at a complete beginner’s level. It develops essential reading skills in a progression that will take a non-reader through to a 3rd grade reading level.
At the end of each map, each child will complete a quiz. After completion of this quiz you will receive a personalized email describing each child’s reading progress and the skills and concepts covered. Each learner also has their own web-based dashboard which displays a brief overview of the reading skills covered and the number of books read. Go to the “About” section of Reading Eggs for an overview of the levels and details of all the phonic skills, sight words and vocabulary covered in the lessons.

We have worked hard to make this the best online website for young children. It has everything that children love to do online. The games, the songs, the variety of activities and the many rewards all work together to make learning to read an exciting, fun and enjoyable experience. And young children love learning to read.
The Reading Eggs program has been designed to get children reading as quickly as possible. To do this, we initially need to focus on the sounds and high frequency words that will enable a child to read their first simple words and sentences. We want children to learn how letters make words and how these words can make sentences – sentences that they can read. This is why the program does not progress in alphabetical order, as Reading Eggs is all about learning the skills and strategies that are important when learning to read. Very early on in the program children learn that what they read has meaning and it makes sense. They also experience real success—children read their first story book in lesson 9—this is what learning to read is all about, reading books for meaning and enjoyment!
After every five or so lessons each child earns enough golden eggs to go to the Reading Eggs game shop. Here they can choose a game to play. As children work through their reading lessons, they are concentrating, working hard, and achieving as they learn many new reading skills. We want your child or students to know that we realize they are working hard in their learning. They deserve a reward for their efforts and sometimes they simply want to play. That’s what these games are for – a fun way to say, “Well done!”

An avatar is an online character that children create and customize. Every child is unique and they can express this by creating their own online character, their avatar. This quirky egg-based character welcomes them back every time they return. This avatar is their very own creation and children can change this character as often as they like.
To change an avatar’s appearance, you simply need to login to your account and navigate to the ‘My Stuff’ tab, from here select ‘My Avatar.’ You will be able to select a variety of items in the change room. You have lots of free items to choose from as well as extra accessories you can buy from Reggie’s Shop. To pay for these you will need ‘golden eggs,’ which you earn by completing lessons and puzzles. You need to visit the shop and buy these items before you go to the change room.
After each lesson children are rewarded with a great new Reading Eggs critter to add to their zoo. This collection continues to grow, the more reading lessons they complete. Children love collecting and our cute critters are fun to watch. The Reading Eggs critters also have a fun learning to read connection – go to your My Critters page and check out each card and you’ll see that the critter cards have information that builds knowledge of the letter or sound that was the focus of the lesson.
The newly created Reading Eggs World allows your child to explore new destinations including Puzzle Park, Reggie’s Shop and their very own Reading Eggs house.
