I just introduced this app to my student with autism. Finding stories that interest him enough to read is a challenge. He LOVES the monkey dancing at the end and will open the app to read the different passages so he can answer the questions. You have to answer all 5 questions correctly the first time in order to see the monkey dance at the end. I love that you can look back to the passage to find the answer and that you can hide the passage to further work on comprehension. Would like to see different monkeys or animals and dances foe different stories, however, my student doesn’t seem to mind at all. 😃
I have been using this with my third grade students that are reading at a lower level. It has been a wonderful addition to our curriculum. They really enjoy the stories and have managed to pick up some useful information along the way. I love that it has a progress report to let me know if they understood what they read. One additional thing I would like to see is an email option so that I can easily share my student's progress with their parents.
The app is stable and the GUI is intuitive. All great, BUT...
The problem is the stories are so short, it feels like there is no content. A 6 or 7 year old can read one of the "books" in way less than 5 minutes. I'd like the story to be long enough to hold the child's attention for 15-20 minutes. This review applies to this version and the level 2 version.
If the stories ever get longer, this app would be an easy 5 stars.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
