iPad Screenshot 3This fiction reading comprehension app has twenty stories about the children's daily life. You can also create and add your own stories.

Each story has about 80 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, compound words, suffix or prefix 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 photos 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.

This app is ideal for self-paced learning or home schooling. You should encourage your child to work at his or her own pace, and make learning fun! 

AppAbles Opinion 
While the app doesn't read the text, if a child struggles with a word, they just have to select it and it will be read to them - wonderful, so they have to try.  I also love how this app is totally programmable. You can set up the comprehension questions from your own story to be yes/no or more complex of multiple choice or matching word, definitions, prefix, suffix etc.  If you are out, take a photo and make a simple social story, add your questions from the day, choices that were made.  It is so very quick and easy to do.  Brilliant
