    Default Reading eggs program

    Learn to read in 4 weeks. Really? Does it work?
    Awhile I signed up for a free trial to check it out and it was very confusing for me to navigate around!
    Is it an online learning program or do you print worksheets out?

    Most schools seem to use it these days so if it's for your school aged DS make sure he doesn't already have a subscription.
    It's all playable online, so no worksheets. You can buy reading books and activity books through their website though.
    As for learning to read in 4 weeks, depends on the child I guess. My youngest has been playing it for 2 years and still can't read. My eldest could read before he ever played it so can't comment there.

    I signed my nephew up to the reading eggs program (I think via the ABC). He didn't really use it, but my third nephew really took to it and was able to read from about 3 1/2- he could read the sides of packets etc. He has just started kindergarten and can already read well ahead of his class. Just hoping he doesn't get bored!

    it is online

    I dont know about 'learn to read in 4 weeks' ... usually its a 4 week trial, and then you sign up for a longer term subscription.

    I found it brilliant. DD desperately wanted to learn to read early, and her school wasnt terribly helpful in that - so she started it a few months before she turned 4, and loved it. I ended up getting a 2 year subscription and she used it until it ran out

    It is brilliant. All online but there are free printable worksheets and complimentary books to buy. I'd agree with learning to read in 4 weeks...by lesson 6 they are reading short 'I am Sam' type books.
