What teachers are saying:
"I love that there are sooo many passages to choose from for each reading level. It gives me a large selection to choose from. Thank you." Kathy
"These passages are superb. They are well-written and are developmentally-appropriate. I love how comprehension is incorporated into them as well. I am so excited to use these with my first graders." Alicia
"When I started looking for reading comprehension passages with text based questions, I had no idea that this packet would be so phenomenally perfect for the task at hand!" Ronald
This app is ideal for use in either a classroom or home setting. It is recommended that a parent or teacher work through the first couple passages with students. Once students are familiar with the format of the multiple choice questions, this app can be used independently. Each section of text can be touched individually to hear its pronunciation.
We love feedback! Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
