Recently we have been trial running the ABC Reading Eggs program as we have bought book one and found Addison very interested and keen. I have been letting him use my laptop to complete the lessons, however I was finding that using the mouse was slowing him down and I didn’t want him to lose interest. We have been wanting to get a pad or tablet of some sort for a while now, and one of the reasons was so Addi could use learning apps.

We decided to get him a Samsung Tab3 and at first had a few issues. We couldn’t get the reading eggs program to work on it properly, the sound wasn’t working (which is vital to its use)… but after some searching Daddy was able to get it working as it should. I have to say I’m disappointed they only have 2 apps available on android and the rest are on apple only.

Addi and Pressie Checking Out His New Tablet

I’ve since purchased him a yearly subscription to Reading Eggs and Math Seeds. He absolutely loves both and is making wonderful progress. He has finished the “map” for both and is reading at a 4.5 year old level. He’s learning letter sounds and blending, which is great, because he knows his alphabet very well but now he is being taught how the letters make up words and how to sound them out to read them.

I’m so pleased at his readiness to learn. One of the main reasons I’ve introduced this to him is that he will only be doing pre-prep next year (most likely only a couple of days a week) and then finally school (prep) the year after that. He is very ready and I don’t want him to be held back, simply because they don’t accept him yet based on age and when he was born! Anything I can do to keep him interested at home and keep him learning is brilliant in my eyes.
