My Take

Overall the product is very entertaining for my students. The app keeps them actively engaged while I'm teaching guided reading to small groups. The children were able to navigate without constant redirection. I'm using the free version and wish there were more nonfiction books included. I have not seen the subscription version.

How I Use It

I used Reading Rainbow as the Listening Center in my daily classroom work board. Students were able to use the iPads to actively engage them in reading. I created an activity to go with the book for the children to complete after listening/reading the story.
