Ratings and Reviews
I am a Reading Specialist and I love this app, however it is not compatible on my new iPad. I would like to use it in my site word station, but the maker needs to update the program.
Great for struggling students.
My four year old son has mastered 40 Pre-primer words on the first 3 days of drilling him 20 to 30 minutes a day.
This is a great app for pre-reading. I really like the functionality and flexibility of this learning platform-the ability to flag words. Thanks to this app, my son is well on his way to mastering reading very quickly. I give this app 5 stars, and would give more If I could. I highly recommend it.
Please create more great apps!
