Customer Reviews

Great Resource

I used K12 Timed Reading practice in the classroom at fluency center. The students loved it and were really motivated to increase their reading speed. I had them write down their WPM on a sticky note and they put it on a chart. I liked how I could put my entire class in roster and I could adjust the passage based on their Reading level.

Bad timer

Stories are fine, but the timer runs about six times faster than it should. This throws off the calculations for the words/minute and you have an extremely disappointed reader who is already not a great reader which is why I bought the app! Please fix your timer.

Bad timer

My daughter was excited to read the passages to try to beat her wpm, but about 4 passages in, the timer started going way too fast. This was very demotivating. I emailed support, so please fix the timer!
