Ratings and Reviews
Love this app
The student that I tutor has been struggling with finding main idea because he doesn't focus on the text. But he really wants to be right so he's working harder with this app than he ever did with me
As an SLP, it works. The repetition helps with comprehension which helps with determining the main idea. The student using this relies on the visuals to see how many more and how he is doing.
It was a little hard because the words were to small it was hard but i did like the music on that app
