You may remember a review I did a few months ago, featuring Reading Eggs. I shared my sweet surprise about the Reading Eggspress portion for older kids and what it was all about. You can read that post here! I am back today with an update now that my daughter has been using Reading Eggspress for awhile. She is in 5th grade and after reviewing Reading Eggs for the last post, I decided to make a change in our homeschool! We now use Reading Eggs for her reading comprehension and spelling.

Why I Chose Reading Eggs

Honestly, my daughter wishes I wouldn’t have chosen this. The main reason – it is difficult! This is also the reason I love it. She can’t just fly right through it, and she is learning things I am not good at remembering to teach.

Below you can see her dashboard, we mainly focus on the MY LESSONS section and the ENGLISH SKILLS section. She works on these on her own using our iPad or a computer.

She has the hardest time with the quiz portion in the Lessons section. Many of the questions about the book are tricky and sometimes we will sit and do these together.  Below you can see a couple of screenshots to give you an idea of what the quizzes look like, just click on the images to enlarge.

As her teacher, I love this section and this is where I am finding a huge benefit. She is learning skills that I often forget to emphasize.

In addition to the digital portion, there are also worksheets to go with each unit.

We do these together as you can see below. I focus on my teaching during this time, making sure she understands how to analyze the text and find answers. She definitely likes this part better – because we are working together.

My daughter is a great speller so switching to Reading Eggs for spelling was a simple choice. It is included in the membership so I took advantage of it to give her exposure to a different spelling program. I give her a pretest before we begin to work so I know which words to focus on.

She completes the spelling portion on the iPad independently for practice. There are all sorts of different activities to practice, as well as a final test.

There are all sorts of different activities to practice {like “Fly Away Word” shown below}, as well as a final test.
