Our app--Reading Comprehension Skills – Grades 1st and 2nd And Assessment helps prepare your child to become a better reader.
With the tap of a finger, your child can hear unfamiliar words within each section. As they listen to pronunciations, children will build reading and vocabulary skills. Learning new words has never been easier!
Here, your child will develop better reading and comprehension by exploring 25 non-fiction animal stories containing stunning visual animal images.
