Reading Eggs


Reading Eggs Online Learning Programme Year 1 - 8
We have recently been investigating ways in which we can enhance our learning techniques/opportunities to boost student performance in the key area of literacy.  Some of you may be aware of the ‘reading fever’ that has erupted since we began a free trial in some of the junior classes of the online learning programme Reading Eggs’.  This programme is created by the same company that provides our ‘Mathletics’ mathematics homework programme which we offer as a subscription to students in Year 4 - 8.  
What Reading Eggs Provides:
  • The modern online format makes developing key reading and comprehension skills fun and rewarding
  • The computer environment is endlessly patient, so your child can make real progress at their own pace
  • Students have access to an online library of more than 650 e-books
  • Parents/Guardians have free access to feedback about their child’s progress 
The trial period has already shown us how quickly students are developing their reading and comprehension skills.  In addition, students of all ability levels (Year 1 - 8)  have become highly engaged and motivated to complete lessons regularly. 
The Reading Eggs subscriptions includes 24/7 access from home and school.  Families who purchase privately pay more than $80 for an annual licence, however as a school we’re able to sign up students at a special annual rate of just $20 per child.  We envisage that this programme will be used with the child completing lessons as an addition to the homework programme, which can be seen as a ‘can do’ activity based on the child’s needs and after school commitments.  
This special offer is available to families until Monday April 2 (Week 10).  If you have any further questions or queries please contact Lisa Harland:  lisah@reremoana.school.nz or visit the website:  http://readingeggs.com/ for further details.
