What Educators Need to Know:

If you are looking for plain ole’ practice on a handheld device, this is the app for you.  As indicated in our Benchmark Tests, my students needed to practice identifying details.   They do NOT like going back into the passage for answers.   In order to succeed in the Game Mode with this app, they must.  There are three modes:  single player mode, game mode, or practice mode.  Each mode presents a paragraph to read and asks a detail question.  Students can go back to the passage to locate the answer.   The game mode is like a bingo board.  When they get one right, they look for their answer.  If it’s there, they click it.  The best part about this app is your ability to control the reading level.  If your classroom is anything like mine, you have students of all different levels.  This app accommodates students from a 2.0 to a 6.5.  $3.99 buys you an app that uses Spache and Dale-Chall Readibility rated passages.  This app isn’t fancy, but it gets the job done

Price: $3.99
