One of my favourite educational apps by Abitalk has gone FREE FOR 1 HR.
You can even create and add your own stories, along with images and comprehension questions to the app to make it even more engaging and personalised for your child.
** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **
This reading comprehension app has twenty fictional stories about children's daily life. You can also create and add your own stories to the app.
Each story has about 250 - 400 words. Each story introduces new vocabulary and concepts, and is followed by a set of exercises that measure the student's comprehension. The exercises include multiple choice questions, true/false questions and matching exercises that ask the student to match words or concepts with their definition, or create compound words.
The app allows unlimited individual users, and provides detailed reports on each student's progress. The app can be configured to email the progress reports to a parent or teacher.
There are two modes: Practice Mode and Test Mode. In practice mode, the student is given visual and audio feedback as they answer each question.
You can create and add your own stories, along with images and questions. You can sync all the data (stories, images, questions, user accounts, reports, etc.) to your dropbox account, and import all the data to another iPad.
This app helps develop reading, vocabulary and comprehension skills.
