Reading Rocks is a visual motor reading series for all emergent readers. There are more than 100 tap and drag exercises and 50 QuickTime Videos to reinforce our Reading Rocks sight words. Children who have not yet learned their ABC's can still learn these words quickly. Students struggling in the area of communication will learn to read these 50 words easily through a series of tap and drag exercises, and scroll through readers. Our children with Autism, Hearing Impairments, or other communication delays who are not verbal will also be able to "show" that they have reading comprehension through a variety of captivating tap and drag pages without uttering a single oral response!
Vibrant, enjoyable and engaging. See why, for more than a decade teachers and students have said "Reading Really Does Rock!"
We loved the Reading Rocks iBook because of the visual instruction. The pictures kept my sons interested and we loved the flashcards! The sight word flashcards are paired with related pictures which really help kids associate the word with the picture and recognize it later. Great tool for readers to help them get started and keep them interested. Thank you!!
I have worked with the Reading Rocks program since it was developed. I work with students on the Autism Spectrum and have found that this visually based reading program is an excellent tool for beginner readers. Because it incorporates reading comprehension (also visually based), it helps students go beyond word recall and starts them on the road to reading for meaning. The E-Edition now makes this tool available in a technology format that all of our children love! Instead of angry birds.....let the learning begin!
