Reading Activities for
Beginning Readers

How do you measure reading success? Have you tried these reading activities? This school year, these apps are what my students like to use to practice their vocabulary and their beginning reading skills. Some are old favorites and others are new to us.

They are just about read for Dr. Suess. Just a little more auditory feedback until they can hear the words in their mind. Hopefully soon then they will be able to read with their eyes only.

My happy comes when I see the flickering of understanding coming to my students' faces. When they read a sentence and they were able to read it and understand it. It is a powerful moment for all who witness in my class.

Read on Sight Free

My students are using this app and enjoying it. They feel like they are on their way to reading successfully because they can read the words presented and they can create them into a sentence. All they have to do is tap and drag. All my special needs students can do this one.

Sentence Reading Magic
By Preschool University
4 STARS out of 5


What I like about this reading app is the simple transition from learning words to reading sentences. Jumping from reading a word to reading a book might intimidate someone with special needs. Every chance to general is appreciated.

This app has helped improve reading with many of my students. Including those who cannot read aloud. Tap the word and it repeats the words. So it is like the student is reading the words for himself. While in the reading mode the picture is not visible, students are suppose to read first then tap the empty square to see the hidden picture. It would be a good idea in the classroom to have someone supervising to make sure the student is not tapping first then repeating the sentence he hears.

Sentence Maker

One of the first reading app to be downloaded in my classroom. Easy to use, just tap drag and release. The matching the word feature really helped my students figure out word order. I insisted the students go from left to right like all reading and writing is done. The app allows any word to be placed first when writing the sentence. I'm sure that completion of a task is sometimes more important but I stressed word order.

Great matching, reading activities for the beginning reader and sentence creator.
