Rhyme to Read

I got the opportunity to review an AMAZING app!  It is called Rhyme to Read and was created by teachers!  You know it is good if teachers created it!

Fellow teachers know our immediate needs and reading is such a high priority in any grade especially in the beginning when those little ones are first learning how to decode.
In this app there are 20 books that students can click on from the home screen.  They are numbered and color coded by vowels!  Perfect if you are focusing on a certain vowel or word family for a given week!
In the book, the left side has a few words that will  be sounded out for you when you tap it and the right side has the story that can be read to you if you tap on the words.  Each word family ending is color coded based on the vowel book color.  GENIUS! 
On the top of the pages are sight words that you will find in the story on that specific page.  
So think about it-each word family word can be found in the various books PLUS the sight words are posted on each page if they are found in the passage on that page.  That means all those little kiddos have an amazing tool to teach them how to READ in a FUN way!  
I LOVE that the story #1 has a few words on each page and by book #20 you have a more complex story that includes more of the word family endings.
This app is $9.99 and worth every penny!  You are getting 20 books!  The school year is winding down, but would still be perfect for those kiddos who need extra practice!
