Early childhood education has always been very important to me.  Though I’m not an educator by profession, I’ve always been interested in and passionate about the capacity of children to exceed our current educational expectations (i.e. our educational systems’ expectations).

While I don’t believe in drilling my kids for hours on end in a boring, creatively desolate environment oh, wait, I do send my kids to public school, I do provide ample opportunities for them to learn through play.  Current technology has given parents a wealth of fun, creative and educational games and programs for our children’s enrichment.

Recently, I was introduced to an online computer learning system called “Reading Eggs”.  Reading Eggs is a fun and engaging program designed for kids ages 3-7 who are learning to read.  With over 120 lessons Reading Eggs provides fairly comprehensive reading introduction and instruction.

My middle son, “Little Brother”, is about to turn four and has been reading simple three to four letter words for a while now.  He is so excited about learning to read and I am eager to harness that excitement and give him something that will teach and challenge him.

Sign up was really simple.  You can actually receive a free 5 week trial to decide if you like it before you subscribe.  That is really helpful.  If your experience has been anything like ours, 5 weeks will give your child a healthy boost in their reading ability.

Once I got Little Brother all signed up I opted to have him take a skills test so the program could start him at his current level (as opposed to starting him at lesson one).  After his assessment the program started him on lesson 20.

I have to say that I am very impressed with the program’s teaching style.  The concepts are introduced in a systematic way that very effective in teaching children of all learning speeds.  Having previously been a therapist and tutor I can also say that the Reading Eggs Program would be great for children with learning delays and autism.
