10 ways ABC Reading Eggs can benefit your homeschooling journey 

1. Core literacy curriculum 

ABC Reading Eggs' comprehensive online reading curriculum covers the five essential components of reading - phonics, phonemic awareness, sight words, reading comprehension and vocabulary. These are the crucial building blocks for learning to read fluently and proficiently. 


ABC Reading Eggs has hundreds of engaging lessons and fun games to motivate your homeschooler to keep learning. Free trial.  

Phonics and phonemic awareness skills are essential for decoding words, allowing children to recognise and sound out unfamiliar words with ease. Sight words provide the building blocks for reading fluency and comprehension, while reading comprehension skills allow children to understand and retain the meaning of what they are reading. Vocabulary development is also key, as it helps children to better comprehend what they are reading, build their knowledge base, and ultimately communicate more effectively. 

ABC Reading Eggs uses self-paced, individualised lessons to cover all five essential components of reading success. The program adapts to your child's needs and learning pace, so they can progress at their own speed without feeling overwhelmed or bored.

With engaging e-books, activities and interactive games, your child will have fun while learning to read. The program's e-books allow your child to read at their own pace, with features such as read-to-me and read-along options to enhance their reading comprehension.

If you ever feel that your child's level has changed, you can redo the placement test at any time to ensure that they are continuing to work at the right level. This feature is especially helpful for homeschoolers who want to ensure that their child is constantly challenged and progressing in their reading skills. 

Another great feature of ABC Reading Eggs for homeschoolers is the ability to manually adjust the program to fit their child's needs. If your child is excelling in a certain area, you can move them forward to a more challenging level, or if they need more support, you can adjust the program to work at their level.

This individualised approach allows homeschoolers to tailor the program to fit their child's needs, helping them reach their full potential. Additionally, you can view each lesson before assigning it to your child.

“Great program! Our son loves having his own avatar that he can buy pets for with his reward eggs and acorns. ABC Mathseeds and ABC Reading Eggspress are superb [too] – love the worksheets to complement each map's lessons. Loads of material that you can print out to complement topics of the week, plus for homeschooling purposes, I loved having sample weekly plans. He has learned so much already from both programs in just a few weeks. Highly recommend.”
