“Apps are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’ll get.”
Today’s students are expecting more out of stories than they did in the past. They love engaging stories that they can interact with. Low-cost yet highly engaging interactive reading apps provide just this kind of reading experience for young learners.
In this webinar, teacher and trained blended learning expert Sarah Rich shared ways for you to better use interactive reading apps in your Pre-K to Grade 2 classroom to increase a variety of skills such as comprehension, receptive language, and vocabulary.
- How to fit interactive reading apps into your literacy block
- Ways of extending the use of these apps in your classroom
- Tips for leveraging all these apps have to offer while keeping your costs down
- A handful of low-cost interactive reading apps Sarah recommends to get started with in your classroom
