I give reading assignments to my students at their ability levels and interest. I love the wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts as they vary in style and genre of reading material.

Elizabeth O., Kingswood, Australia

The children absolutely love it. The are really keen to move up the levels, and earn certificates. They also enjoy watching others working, to see what is happening on the screen. As a teacher it is very straight forward setting tasks and then monitoring how the children are getting on.

Helen S., Colchester, United Kingdom

I love the individual pace students are able to work at. Those who struggle receive more practice. Those who are ‘high fliers’ can move faster. The program is fun for kids, rewarding, and helps them learn phonics and reading.

What are the prizes?

A selection of gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded to the top schools. These medals can be handed out to your top students! Plus, some extra Reading Eggs goodies!

Winning schools are determined by the highest average number of books read per registered student. Since the winning school is based on an average, you only need one to add one class to your Reading Eggs account and will still have a chance to win!
