K12 Timed Reading & Comprehension Practice Lite supports users developing their reading fluency and comprehension skills. When first launching the app, users must register as a student by entering in a name and starting reading level. (Please note: In the lite version of this app, only one student can be added. Users must upgrade to enter multiple students.) Next, users select the student name and choose the grade level for the reading passages, which range from K–4. (Please note: Only five reading passages are available per grade level in the lite version. Users will need to upgrade to access additional passages.) After a passage is selected, the app times users as they read it and then presents them with reading-comprehension questions. After answering the questions, the app reports the user’s fluency rate and comprehension score. This data is stored in the app, and users can access it by tapping the “graph” button on the top right of the reading list or activities screens.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students complete one grade-level reading passage per week. As the weeks pass, users can tap the “graph” button to analyze any trends in their fluency or comprehension.
  2. After reading a passage, teachers can have students turn to a partner and explain the passage that they just read. As part of that explanation, students can explain who was included in the passage, what the passage was about, and where it took place. Next, students can answer the comprehension questions.
  3. Once students become familiar with this app, teachers can give them paper-and-pencil reading passages to read. After reading them, teachers can have students write two to three comprehension questions that model the questions included in this app. The questions can be written with the UX Documents, Office Offline, or Cloud On apps. The questions can then be emailed to the teacher, who can post the reading passage and questions to a class website for other students to read and answer.
