Avoid the Summer Slide with new activities, books, and rewards on the popular reading platform

To help parents avoid the Summer Slide, the award-winning reading program Reading Eggs has announced brand new features aimed at keeping children engaged and learning all summer. Ranging from the addition of the Mental Minute on their program Mathseeds, to 500 brand new books and monthly themes for their avatars, Reading Eggs is dedicated to building confidence and skills in both math and literacy, ensuring that children are ready to tackle the year ahead.

For children working on increasing confidence in math skills, the newly offered Mental Minute from Mathseeds is the perfect tool. These timed sprints allow children to learn a new set of math facts in one minute. Upon completion of each of the 145 challenges, children will earn collectible badges that motivate them to progress through three levels of difficulty.

To help children engage in storytelling and put their writing skills to the test, Reading Eggs has debuted The Story Factory which allows users to create their very own full-color storybooks. Once a story is complete, parents can print out the pages and create a physical book. The books are also saved on the child’s bookshelf in their virtual house. In addition, children can enter their stories into a weekly contest with the best stories being selected by other children and the winner receiving 200 Golden Eggs every Friday.

Reading Eggs isn’t just for older children - Reading Eggs Junior is the perfect tool for toddlers aged 2-4 and now includes even more activities and books. Alphabet Animal is a fun and interactive early learning activity that builds letter recognition, including silly sounds and interactive graphics. For children who love books, Reading Eggs has launched the new “Me” book set, a collection of illustrated fiction books that teach children about different families, body parts, self-care routines, and more. The platform also has added new Spanish storybooks that feature gorgeous illustrations and photographs which will help develop Spanish vocabulary, language, and early reading skills. Reading Eggs Junior has also introduced an all-new video series that expands on the popular everyday adventures of best friends Erple and Gweem. These short videos are great for demonstrating the importance of cooperation and communication skills and are available in the Reading Eggs Junior video library.

Keeping children engaged in learning lessons can be a challenge which is why Reading Eggs introduced new Monthly Themes to the app. Children can use their Golden Egg rewards to customize their avatar and experience with limited edition clothing and furniture. These new themes are a great way to keep children engaged with their lessons, encouraging them to continue on their reading journey.

Reading Eggs is dedicated to helping children succeed in both reading and math and is currently offering a free 30-day trial of their platform as well as hundreds of free printables for families during COVID-19. In addition to activities, the Reading Eggs platform offers access to 2,500 age and level appropriate books that families can read together.
