The Library within Reading Eggspress has now grown to over 2,000 titles. These eBooks are perfect to boost your resources within other subject areas, with coverage of history, people and society, geography, science, health and sport. Many eBooks in the library have dedicated book notes, chapter and book quizzes, so you can easily test your students’ knowledge of the subject areas as they go. The Library is also the perfect place for students to begin researching a project, as a bonus, students don’t have to take turns borrowing a book like your regular school library.
It is no secret that positive reinforcement is one of the biggest motivators for young learners, which is why it is incorporated into as many areas of Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress as possible. Students earn varying amounts of Eggs for reading books, writing stories, completing quizzes and lessons, and playing games. Eggs can be spent in the shop to personalise students’ avatars and decorate their virtual home. For a more tangible reward, Reading Expert trophies are available to present to particularly eggceptional students.
As a teacher, you can assign comprehension lessons or any Library book to your students through “Manage Assignments” in your teacher centre. This is a great opportunity for students to get a head start on a concept before class. For example, if you are planning a lesson on Oceans, assign the ‘Oceans’ Comprehension Lesson or assign chapter 1 of the book for students to read for homework beforehand.
Although online learning is fast becoming the new norm, we can’t forget the importance and effectiveness of putting pen to paper. That’s why Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress encourage a blended learning approach. The main learning pathways of ‘Lessons’ for Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress are just the tip of the iceberg. There is a huge range of printable resources within the teacher centre, with book notes and worksheets for many library books and big books. Take your Reading Eggs journey offline for a truly blended learning approach.
