Reading Eggs Review

Over the summer holidays I have been making sure the twins and Noah keep up with their reading with the help of Reading Eggs


What is Reading Eggs?
.
Reading Eggs was created by expert educators with over 30 years of experience.
The multi-award winning early learning resource supports your child’s learn to read journey with carefully designed online reading games and activities that are easy to follow, self-paced, and highly engaging for young children.
By incorporating Reading Eggs into your child’s daily routine, you will be helping to prepare them for the same structured learning they will need to succeed and feel confident at school.


How Reading Eggs teaches your child to read

  • The lessons use colourful animation, fun characters, songs, and rewards to keep children motivated.
  • The programme is completely interactive to keep children on task.
  • When children start the programme, they can complete a placement quiz to ensure they are starting at the correct reading level.
  • Parents can access detailed progress reports as well as hundreds of full-colour downloadable activity sheets that correspond with the lessons in the programme.
  • The programme includes over 2000 online books for kids – each ending with a comprehension quiz that assesses your child’s understanding.



I had heard about Reading Eggs but wasn't 100% sure whether to boys would take to it, but after seeing how much the twins enjoyed reading in Reception and given that Noah needed that little bit of encouragement when it comes to reading an actual book I was more than happy to give it ago.

Once you sign up you can create an account your child and there you will be able to see how they are getting on and their reading level and all the books that they have read.

Before the twins could start they had to take a simps test to see what level they are at.
Alex was bang on age 5 and knew 100 phonic skills and 18 sight words
Where Oscar is reading at age 5.25 and knows 137 phonic skills and 45 sight words.

This impressed us as Alex has always shown more of an interest in reading and Oscar has just been more laid back about it all.
So both Jon and I were expecting Alex to be scoring higher than Oscar.


Reading Eggspress is aimed at 7 - 13 year olds, Noah is 9 so this is what he logs on to when he wants to read and play games.
(He hasn't yet figured out that the games he plays when he's on Reading Eggspress he's actually learning!)

Before Noah could do anything he also needed to take a little test of 20 questions and once he was finished it was suggested he start on lesson 61.

He used to love reading but then with all the constant school changes (due to moving houses) and upheavals he soon started to back off and take more of an interest in his Playstation.

It's been much easier to get Noah to read a book off the laptop than it has been to read an actual paper book.
So every night once the twins have gone to bed he'll ask if he can pick a new book and have a go on the games.
It's been lovely to see his spark come back and him enjoying something other than Minecraft or Zelda.


Along with reading the boys have really loved playing all the games on their app.
Their favourite at the moment seems to be Driving Tests.

Every right question you answer moves your car around the track.
You have three choices,
Red Car -Sight Words,
Green Car -Letters and Sound Words,
and Blue Car -Content Words.

Both boys loved racing the Green Car, as they have never got a question wrong....yet!


The books which are suggested for each child are all down to their progress and they refresh once you've picked one.
Oscar & Alex love deciding which books to read and get rather excited at the massive choice they have.
Once they finished the books they would have to answer a quiz.


To start with they thought they could just blag it but they figured out they actually needed to read the whole book to be able to answer the quiz. 

Once the quiz is answered correctly you will receive egg points.
You can use your egg points in the store to buy all sorts of things from heads for your avatar to games!



It's been lovely to see how much fun the boys have had using Reading Eggs and I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't tried it yet.
It's perfect for little ones who are just starting out with reading and even those like Noah who are past the phonic stage but still learning.

There is a Reading Eggs Junior which is aimed at children aged 2-4years old.
If I thought Ru would actually sit still I would have tried with him but I think this will be something I do with him next summer before he starts Reception.
He did show an interest in watching the twins, so thats a good start!!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
