Ratings and Reviews
I have been using this app for remediation with students that have not properly acquired the skills needed to read fluently and it has helped greatly. It is easy to use and follow along. Students generally enjoy it. I will continue to use it in my arsenal to help students achieve and progress.
Sound is distorted...
Disappointing. This app is meant to help students hear examples of fluent, accurate and expressive reading but instead they hear crackly sound as the example. It certainly has potential but it did not work on my iPad.
I was hoping to have reading passages that I could have my students read and practice with. Instead, it's an app that tells kids what fluency is. A waste of my 99 cents.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
