Having been featured on both iTunes educational “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” lists, Reading Comprehension Camp has quickly become a highly sought after app for any parent, educator or therapist who is serious about improving the reading comprehension skills of their children or students.
Reinforcing your child’s learning experiences at home has never been so fun by choosing the best curriculum with 50 engaging and entertaining stories. Almost all of the stories have a lesson to teach which can make for a great discussion with your child and act like therapy in English. A built-in hint feature reinforces your child to look back at the text when they are struggling with questions and polishes syntax skills with context.
The in-app data collection makes this app ideal for progress monitoring in Response to Intervention (RTI) or Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). Teachers, Reading Specialists, and Speech-Language Pathologists will love the customization, the graphed data, and the skills targeted. Students will love the engaging stories, creative art work, and the virtual awards that can be earned in this speech therapy program.
With five (5) levels of stories available there are stories for most readers. Level 1 is designed for early readers (2nd & 3rd grade); while level 5, with a Flesch-Kincaid readability level of 6-7 grades, is designed for older students.
Every story contains 11 types of questions for a total of 550 questions
Need to encourage language skills in addition to reading comprehension? No problem! Reading Comprehension Camp allows the student to create his or her own stories using smarty reading kit. Students can create stories using Reading Comprehension Camp pictures or by importing their own pictures off the iPad. When creating their stories, the students will need to create a title, select a level, name the author, and generate quiz questions (and answers).
The app tracks performance like disfluency index counter. Within the app itself, a student report card is generated after every session. In the report card, a bar graph is shown to allow an easy-to-read visual of the student’s progress. In addition, a narrative report is provided showing the type of questions attempted, results correct/incorrect, and percentage correct.
Each story has an associated quiz to check for comprehension disability and its therapy. Within the quiz, there are 11 types of questions available. The adult can determine if all questions will be asked, or select a certain type of question. The question types available include: who, what, where, when, why, how, inferences, cause & effect, compare & contrast, sequencing, and vocabulary & context clues. Each quiz allows the student to “check” his or her answer. If the answer is correct, a soft chime is heard. If the answer is incorrect, the wrong answer is eliminated or crossed out. Finally, the adult is able to choose which student is answering a question at any given time. Therefore; if a group of students is working on the quiz, they can take turns answering the questions or answer the same question repeatedly until it is answered correctly.
