  • Am i the only one who thinks teaching monsters to read is a bad idea!

    1. Teach monsters to read
    2. ???
    3. End of life as we know it.

    Wake up, people!

  • My five year old loves it, very colourful and interesting. I think this is better than Reading Eggs in a way, albeit serving different purpose.

    It was created by the publisher Usborne which specialise in Children's books, on par with DK imho.

    • Do you pay for reading eggs? Trialled it but not a huge fan.

      • A lot of schools provide a subscription.
        All 3 of my boys love it, and have learnt a lot

      • No, we are in Melbourne, the school provided the code. They are trying to do too many things. The content is ok, but the interface is still in the Flash age.

        Another good one is Khan Academy for Kids, made by Khan Academy obviously.

        • Trialling reading eggs right now. Seems okay, but i feel like it's too slow at some things - eg single letters, but it's mixed into the phonics content so your kid has to do it. It also doesn't play nicely with gesture and curved screens and often gets stuck loading.

          Kahn academy is good, but honestly the kids content probably only gets up to 4. There's also no way to fast forward certain content that your kid already knows. Eg my daughter at 4 years was still being asked to do rectangles because she keeps losing interest at that module and because she doesn't complete it, the app assumes rectangles are her Achilles heel. I'd much rather it lets me focus on say phonics and basic maths.

    • I went through the whole monster game with my son twice, and then he also did reading egg before he started Prep.

      I would say that he didn't really learn anything by playing the monster game, cos to him it's really just game. Reading eggs is much more effective.

      So I would recommend Reading eggs rather than letting him play this game.

  • Sweet, I had this on my iPad not on my son's Galaxy tab, and he was literally playing with it on my iPad right now, just installed it on his galaxy, thanks

  • That's awesome. I'm sure this will come in handy soon. Thanks OP

  • Thanks OP. I purchased few months ago on iPad which is very effective for my kids. Will get it on Android as well.
    Kids learn phonics and start to read sentence very quickly. Highly recommend parents to give it a go for their kids. It is much better than reading eggs imo.

    • I tried both. My son finished the game twice but still don't know how to read. Reading Eggs is better in my experience.

      He started using reading eggs at the beginning of this year before he started Prep. He finished it before prep begins (in 1 month's time) and proceed to use Reading Eggpress. He's now reading at year 3 level.

      Having said that, I had been teaching my son phonics by burrowing books in the library before prep started. So he skipped 12 out of 20 levels in Reading Eggs. But my point is my son didn't really learn anything through the app.

  • Thanks OP, downloaded for my future kid

  • I reckon Reading Eggs would be vaporware if it didn't have that pseudo ABC affiliation attached to it.
    It's really pretty shit amongst a sea of other shit reading applications. There's definitely a gap in the market for one that's good.

  • Thanks. Will check it out. Good to have some educational apps for those times when you want to do something luxurious like go to the toilet without anyone watching you.
