A fantastic educational resource
I was dubious about how my 3 year old would find ABC Reading Eggs, given he started the program only able to recognise capital E (his letter!), but the program is truly amazing! I am so impressed at how the program starts with basic letter recognition, then gradually builds on this through a series of entertaining and engaging challenges. I also like that once you get through a few simple letter lessons that the lessons start to include a small revision component to help cement learning.
We have never done ‘iPad games’ with our son before but he picked it up so quickly and it was lovely watching how proud he was as he completed each activity. The animation and sounds are high quality and really capture his attention.
One drawback has been that it is so engaging that my son refused to stop to go to the toilet and ended up weeing all over our couch! He is also always so keen to do the activity that he doesn’t like to listen to the instructions, which then makes him frustrated when he (unsurprisingly) doesn’t know what to do!
As our 3 year old is at the very beginning of his learning to read journey, we have found that ABC Reading Eggs is much more effective when we sit and complete the activities with him, encouraging him to say the letters and words out loud along with the program.
Overall, this is a fantastic program that I would encourage all families to invest in. Since we started it we have noticed that when we read books with our son, he is now able to recognise letters he has learnt through the ABC Reading Eggs program.
