Reading Eggs is a revolutionary product from Australian educational publisher Blake Publishing designed to get children reading by combining the best elements online and book learning in one easy to use process. The program has been running in Australia for 3 years and due to its huge success it has now been adapted for the UK market, specifically incorporating synthetic phonics.
The importance of synthetic phonics
Synthetic phonics is a method of teaching reading which first teaches the letter sounds and then builds up to blending these sounds together to achieve full pronunciation of whole words e.g. s-t-r-ee-t
Children who learn using synthetic phonics are able to try new words working from sound alone without needing prior knowledge of families of words
Research has shown that children learning to read using synthetic phonics have developed skills and progressed to a higher level faster than those without
The use of synthetic phonics in teaching has been supported by the British government and has not only been added to the national curriculum but a funding scheme has also been developed where schools can claim up to Â£3,000 for an effective phonics program
Where Reading Eggs came from
For two years a team of Australian educators, programmers and animators worked to turn learning the basics of reading into a fun journey through a highly interactive digital world that engages children on many levels.
Full of educationally sound, fun and interactive activities, Reading Eggs focuses on the most fundamental skill needed in school: reading. Children from 3 to7 years of age or older children struggling with reading will enjoy the huge variety of reading lessons, activities and games that make up the Reading Eggs program.
