Improve your students reading and writing

The power of literacy: When reading and writing unite

Confident readers who can express themselves clearly? Yes, please!

When it comes to literacy, the most powerful learning occurs when reading comprehension and writing are taught hand in hand.

Strong comprehension involves dissecting texts, grasping complex ideas and appreciating language nuances.

Students who can analyse and interpret what they read are not only better equipped to acquire knowledge but also articulate their insights with clarity and confidence.

Writing bridges the gap between understanding and expression, allowing students to effectively communicate their knowledge.

It's where they can apply their insights and put grammar and vocabulary into meaningful practice.

ABC Reading Eggspress, included in your ABC Reading Eggs subscription, and Writing Legends, our systematic online writing program, aren't just separate programs; they're a powerful team.

Here, we’ll explore how ABC Reading Eggspress equips students with essential comprehension strategies, while Writing Legends provides the ideal platform to solidify those skills through engaging writing practice.
