Rhyme to Read with a Giveaway!!!

I am always looking for great apps for my students, especially my struggling readers.  The two most important requirements I look for in an app are...

~Is it meaningful?  There are a lot of apps out there that start off meaning well but kids quickly learn how to manipulate them into simply being games.  Believe me, I enjoy fun and games just as much as the next person but I want to make sure my students are actually learning during the fun and games.

~Is it easy to navigate?  I LOVE an app that is easy for kids to navigate.  If a student is already uncomfortable with a skill then adding a difficult to navigate app on top of that causes even more frustration.

This app meets those requirements and much, much more.    Rhyme to Read was created by two teachers Sara Hines and Lynn Klaiman.  These two ladies have a TON of experience teaching reading to kids!

Included in the app are 20 leveled stories.  Students start at a beginning level and work their way up through the levels.  Each story builds upon the skills taught in the books before.  

Word families or chunks in words are a different color so students learn to look for those when they are stuck on a word.  Students can always go back and read any of the books they read in the past, reinforcing skills that they have learned.  Here is a sample page from the first book.  
Here is a sample page from book 20.    You can see that the character is even familiar to the students.  I LOVE how they build upon previously taught skills... this is a great way to build confidence!
