Our awesome instructional coach here at Pattison has come across a great app called, Is Your Child on Track? This app is from Heinemann and is a great tool that gives parents specific reading behaviors to look for depending on age, comprehension questions and stems, fluency builders, activities and videos of how to do the activities, and even book recommendations with direct links to amazon.
“For a child, learning to read is like learning to ride a bike. He needs you to show him how. Then you support him as he tries on his own while you run alongside holding the seat. Finally, he bursts away riding solo down the street. The same is true in learning to read—he needs a model, then guidance, which builds his confidence so he tries more difficult tasks. This app will guide parents in supporting their chidren through this learning process.”— Bonnie Campbell Hill & Carrie Ekey
