January 15 - May 31 Stories & Activities
Each day of the school year, students read the appropriate on-this-date-in-history nonfiction story...but if they're having difficulty reading it, this interactive program can read it to them! Students follow along on-screen, word for word, while the highlighted text is being narrated. These visual and auditory aids help "level the playing field" for struggling readers while significantly improving fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension! Follow-up activities include on-screen crossword puzzles, word games, and multiple choice quizzes to assess comprehension--while keeping interest high.
Easy Assessment & Management Tool
At the click of a button you can track student progress or see which stories have been assigned and read. Quizzes are automatically graded for easy assessment, then stored for later review! Versatile features allow you to assign the 274 stories by their date in history, or by matching student interest to a relevant text. Create custom reading lists based on popular themes like sports, animals, and more!
