We have listened to what parents and teachers want from such an App and incorporated it all. For example, we have included a reading log that can be submitted to the school electronically on a weekly basis, thus replacing manual reading records. Couple that with a fun ‘aliens in space’ theme that rewards children for reaching milestones in their reading and the outcome will be a child who is more engaged in his/her reading.
Also included are key elements from the national curriculum are included to help parents understand what their child is taught at school. Features such as a phonic audio dictionary, comprehension questions, a punctuation rocket, book reviews and target setting support, all ensure parents have all the tools to support their child’s reading at home.
Whether an accomplished reader picks up his/her 10th book of the week, or a non-reader gets excited about reading one book, we plan to see progress and get children reading more.
