  • 1. Students login here.
  • 2. Students select from Fast Phonics (Foundation), Reading Eggs (Years 1-2) or Reading Eggspress (Years 3-8)
  • 3. The placement test will automatically start for Reading Eggs students. Reading Eggspress students can click on “Lessons” to start their test.

Have students doing Fast Phonics? Here’s your teacher guide to Peaks 1-10 along with a lesson plan and heaps of printable resources.

Goal 2. Complete the first lesson

Each student’s learning journey starts with a lesson. Students click on “Lessons” which will take them to their Activity Map where they can pick a new activity. Thanks to the placement test, these have been set to the right level for them!

Here’s what a teacher in Australia
thought of the Reading Eggspedition


My Year 4 class have thrived while using Reading Eggspress. They love the lessons, books and activities provided to assist their learning. They like the games that they can play against each other.
