Reading Eggs Program Overview
Stepping Stones Lessons
The Stepping Stones Reading lessons are the core of the Reading Eggs learn-to-read program. Each lesson builds on the previous one to build skills in five key areas: phonemic awareness and phonics, sight words, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. The lessons are presented in three broad levels with 40 lessons in each level.
- Level 1 Starting out for absolute beginners: Pre-K-kindergarten, lessons 1-40
- Level 2 Beginning to read for emerging readers: 1st grade, lessons 41-80
- Level 3 Building confidence for early readers: 2nd grade, lessons 81-96
Skills Bank Lessons
The Skills Bank Spelling lessons are the core of the Reading Eggs learn-to-spell program. The Spelling Vault contains 96 carefully graded spelling lessons. Each spelling lesson focuses on a 12-word spelling list. The lessons cover the spelling requirements of the first three years of school with 32 lessons per year level.
This section of Reading Eggs assesses reading skills with tests that cover high-frequency sight word knowledge, phonic skills (letters and sounds), and content area vocabulary. Each of the three areas has 15 quizzes, with 20 questions in each quiz.
Storylands lessons focus on vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Each lesson contains six activities, a new book, and a comprehension quiz. As students progress through the lessons, they are greeted with characters and interactive elements that keep them engaged and moving forward.
In the Story Factory, students practice their creative writing skills by creating their own books with full-color illustrations. Students can compete in a weekly story writing competition to win Golden Eggs. The top stories are displayed in the Story Factory Showroom.
Puzzle Park contains 32 timed puzzles that reinforce a variety of literacy skills, including comprehension, sight word knowledge, vocabulary development, following directions, and problem solving.
