Thank you to Reading Eggs for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

You know I love sharing good homeschool curriculum reviews with you. I want to make sure you know the in’s and out’s of a program so you can make the best decision for your kids and your homeschool. That’s why today I am sharing my Reading Eggs review. I was very excited when Reading Eggs contacted me because I wanted to give them a try with my younger kids who are learning to read. It took only a few minutes to realize that my kids were going to love the program. Let’s jump into the review and discuss why we like it so much!

What is Reading Eggs?

Reading Eggs actually includes five programs: Reading Eggs Junior (ages 2-4), Reading Eggs (ages 3-7), Fast Phonics (ages 5-10), Reading Eggspress (ages 7-13), and Mathseeds (ages 3-9). Reading Eggs is a comprehensive online reading curriculum. In just 15 minutes a day you will see results in your child.

Reading Eggs was developed by a team of elementary educators with a combined total of 30 years of experience. Suitable for children ages 2⁠–⁠13, Reading Eggs covers the five essential components of reading success: phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

Your child will take a placement test and will be matched perfectly with the correct level. The content is fun an engaging and children actually want to use the program!

The Reading Eggs program specifically includes 120 lessons, Storylands (20 lessons that focus on developing reading, vocabulary, and comprehension skills), 96 spelling lessons, The Story Factory where children can write their own stories, and ebooks that are recommended for the student at the end of each lesson.

Reading Eggs also includes bonus homeschool materials. Worksheets can be printed and used offline.

How much does Reading Eggs cost?

You have two options as far as pricing goes. Each option gives you access to Reading Eggs and Mathseeds for up to four children. The monthly option is $9.99 a month, or you can pay $69.99 for yearly access.

How we use Reading Eggs in our homeschool?

My five year old daughter is using the Reading Eggs program and she begs me to use it all day! It is now her favorite online game. She has used the app on my iPhone and iPad, as well as played on the computer. She doesn’t even realize she’s learning.

I allow her to get screen time to play Reading Eggs twice a day. She’s been working on her letters. I’m so excited to see her progress.

What we like about Reading Eggs

As a busy homeschool mom teaching multiple children, I love that Reading Eggs emails me detailed progress reports each time my child finishes a lesson. I can see exactly what skills she’s worked on.

Reading Eggs also includes a link to the printable materials that correspond to my child’s lessons PLUS home learning tips to further reinforce what she learned online.

I love that I now have a fun educational app to give to my child when she needs to do some independent work while I homeschool one of her siblings. I’m very excited to continue using the program. I think she will learn a lot!
