Becoming a good reader requires practice, just like learning to play a sport or an instrument. The Scholastic Reading Timer app promotes reading practice by encouraging reading every day and most importantly, makes it fun! The Scholastic Reading Timer is a fun and functional reading timer that puts the power of reading in the palm of kids’ hands.
TIME AND LOG READING MINUTES WITH AN INTERACTIVE STOPWATCH
This feature operates just like a real stopwatch, so kids can start/stop, pause to take a break, and watch their reading minutes add up! Once they’re finished reading for the day, they can enter their minutes into a personal weekly log. Parents can track kids' daily reading activity and see how many total minutes they have logged.
DAILY TIPS, ARTICLES, AND BOOKLISTS FOR PARENTS
Support growing readers by reading daily tips, interesting articles, and age-appropriate booklists designed to help parents choose the right books for their kids, build a successful home library, engage their reluctant readers, and more!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in teaching children the value of reading and focusing.
I have used it when setting small reading activities in class , in private sessions or reading groups .
Teachers could also use this to train students to focus on particular skills or tasks .
A must for every learner.
