[Reading Eggs] Boost Literacy Skills with New Summer Catch-Up Program + FREE Samples!

A new summer catch-up program is now live in Reading Eggs! This 10-week program supports students as they transition to grades 1-4. For each week, students will find guidance on which fun-filled online learning activities to complete in Reading Eggs combined with carefully selected printable activity sheets to help boost reading and literacy skills.

Helping students make the successful transition into their new grade level just in time for fall, these new resources are a perfect integration into your summer catch-up program.

To access the summer school guides, educators can log in to the teacher interface and select the new “Summer School” tab on the left navigation pane.

 
What can you find inside?

Ten learning guides per grade level—or forty lesson plans total—support ten weeks of continuous summer instruction and practice. Every weekly packet includes details on what to complete each day and contains:

  • An overview for the week’s learning objectives and materials (both online and offline)
     
  • An incentive chart for students to cross off lessons and worksheets as they complete them
     
  • Printable worksheets that match online lessons in Reading Eggs, Reading Eggspress, or Fast Phonics
     
  • An end-of-week certificate to celebrate your students’ success

A Teacher Guide (here’s an example) also accompanies each grade level bundle, containing:

  • An outline for each week, including the online lessons, additional reading, and worksheets that need to be completed
     
  • Details for teachers to set up their students in Reading Eggs
     
  • Parent and student support for navigating the Reading Eggs site
     

Excited to try out these summer guides with your students? Whether or not you’re currently using Reading Eggs in your classroom, we have great news! You can download the first week of lessons for each grade band through the free samples below:

 
How can these guides be used?

Summer School Classroom Instruction

In a traditional summer school setting, teachers may use the Reading Eggs summer catch-up program as a supplement to a structured curriculum, perhaps spending 30 minutes per day working through weekly online assignments. In addition, teachers may send the printable portions home or also utilize them in classroom independent learning or a station-rotation model.

Parent-Guided Learning

Another way to use the Reading Eggs summer catch-up program is to facilitate parent-guided learning. Before or shortly after school lets out, teachers can put together their online classroom in Reading Eggs and set (or reset) each learner’s progress so it begins where the Teacher Guide recommends. Then, teachers can print out the bundles for each student to pick up from school. A parent letter can also be sent home accompanying the weekly guides to introduce the summer learning program.

We hope these Reading Eggs summer catch-up guides make a splash in your summer learning program! Interested in learning more? Sign up for a free Reading Eggs trial or check out this blog all about mitigating summer reading loss through our dynamic 3-in-1 literacy program.
