How I Use It
I have used this app for assigning on-level books to students for research. I have had younger students be able to research people, animals, etc and write a report on the information they found. This worked because there are many books that are labels 'read to me' to support my struggling readers, as well as many books in other languages to support my ESL students. I also use it as a 'fast finisher' they want to be on the computers but this way they are still practicing their reading.
My Take
Overall, this app has been a great aid in my classroom! I love that I can assign specific books to specific students, allow them free choice, and motivate them to read more.
