Learning to read is one of the most important skills we can learn. Reading Eggs is a comprehensive learn to read programme that supports each child’s learning by offering individual, one-on-one online lessons. These lessons allow each child to progress at their own rate, gradually building their reading confidence. The programme makes learning to read fun and can be highly motivating. Reading Eggs targets 5 key areas:
Children develop phonemic awareness by learning about sounds (phonemes), syllables and words. Reading Eggs teaches phonemic awareness using a sequential series of skill-building activities that increase sound awareness.
Phonics is the process of mapping the sounds in words to written letters. This is a very important reading skill that all children need, and features constantly throughout the Reading Eggs programme.
Having an ever-increasing vocabulary is a fundamental part of academic success. The more words we know, the better we are at reading and understanding the texts that we read. Reading Eggs increases the number of words each child understands and uses as part of their working vocabulary.
To build active reading comprehension skills, Reading Eggs uses activities that scaffold each child’s understanding with a wide range of pre-reading activities to ignite their thinking. They will progress from learning words and their meanings to reading for meaning, moving from learning to read to reading to learn.
Fluency is crucial for children as they build their reading skills. Reading Eggs achieves this through instructional activities that build children’s reading stamina. Just like any exercise programme where your fitness increases over time, reading is a skill that needs time, effort and regular practice.
