Today I’m delighted to be sharing the news that I am now a Golden Eggsplorer! Well, the children are, to be more precise, which means we’re now proud ambassadors for Reading Eggs.
I’m really pleased to be working with them and over the year I’ll bring you the latest news from them and tell you how we’re getting on with the programmes. This one’s special to me as Reading Eggs was actually one of the earliest blog posts that I wrote about, as Boo gave their free trial a whirl back when she was 3, and we liked it so much we signed up for it. You can read that initial review post here, and I then reviewed the Mathseeds package, and Boo loved that, too.
So it’d be safe to say that my daughter is a fan, and I’ve no doubt that these stood her in good stead for when she started school, and she’s doing so well there now in both reading and maths. Reading’s always been important to me as a parent, and both children have had stories read to them since their baby days, enjoying many, many books every week. I think that combined with Reading Eggs has given her a great start at school, and she now devours every single bit of reading matter that she spots – road signs, van graphics, washing labels, and of course, actual books!
We’ll be spending more time on this this year, and I’ll let you know how we’re getting on with it from time to time, and I’m really looking forward to introducing Little Man to it, too. I’ll be interested to see how he gets on with it, as he’s a very different little soul to his sister, and I will of course report back.
Reading Eggs are kicking off their school readiness campaign today, and I would definitely recommend using this with young children in the run up to starting school. Reading Eggs is for ages 3-7, along with Reading Express for 7-13 year olds, and Mathseeds is aimed at 3-6 year olds. They will also be offering a free 4 week trial over there now, so why not give it a go and see what I’m going on about?
In the meantime, it only seems right that we celebrate in style and I offer one of my lucky readers a chance to win a Reading Eggs and Mathseeds subscription. To be in with a chance of winning the subscription, worth £47.95, enter using the rafflecopter below. The give-away is open to UK entrants only, and closes at 12 am 16th June 2015. Good luck!
