Reading comprehension seems to be a major issue for my speechie kids. Almost all of my upper grade students have it as part of their language goal. The curriculum in
4th 3rd 2nd – 5th grade is drowning in comprehension and higher level thinking. With common core creeping in, I know it’s only going to get more prevalent. Because I service my language disordered kiddos in their regular classroom setting, I’m thankful for apps that make it easy to practice these necessary skills.
- The stories are leveled and appropriate for a variety of student abilities.
- It targets several question types and skills, making it applicable for addressing the skill they are focusing on in class.
- The option of creating your own story is awesome! Perfect for students who need to work on writing and generating questions. I can definitely envision a reading project for my upper grades.
- I love the “hint” button. Highlighting or underlining the text is a strategy the teachers reiterate in class. Love it!
- Easily tracks data on each student and lets you go from student to student to during the same set of questions.
- It would be great if there were more questions for each skill area instead of just one. I’d like to be able to get a good set of data for a given skill.
- I’d also like to be able to customize the question types for each student instead of each therapy group.
- It’s a little pricey; however, you do get a lot for the money you put in.
