Reading Comprehension Camp is a multi-purpose app specifically designed to encourage language growth and reading comprehension. With multiple levels, 50 stories, and the ability to create personal stories this comprehensive app is perfect for students struggling with comprehension. The in-app data collection makes this app perfect for progress monitoring in Response to Intervention (RTI) or Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). Teachers, Reading Specialists, and Speech-Language Pathologists will love the customization, the graphed data, and the skills targeted. Students will love the engaging stories, creative art work, and the virtual awards that can be earned.
layers may be imported into Reading Comprehension Camp from the Therapy Report Center or entered on the Readers page. Up to four players can be selected per session. With five (5) levels of stories available there are stories for most readers. Level 1 is designed for early readers (2nd & 3rd grade); while level 5, with a Flesch-Kincaid readability level of 6-7 grades, is designed for older students.
When the story is selected the screen opens with a picture and text. Within the story the adult can customize each story. For the auditory learner it is possible to increase the picture size and decrease font size; for the older student or reader the picture size can be decreased while the text size increases. In addition, within each story is a record button which allows the student to record themselves to help with reading fluency and self-awareness.
Each story has an associated quiz to check for comprehension. Within the quiz, there are 11 types of questions available. The adult can determine if all questions will be asked, or select a certain type of question. The question types available include: who, what, where, when, why, how, inferences, cause & effect, compare & contrast, sequencing, and vocabulary & context. Each quiz allows the student to “check” his or her answer. If the answer is correct, a soft chime is heard. If the answer is incorrect, the wrong answer is eliminated. Finally, the adult is able to choose which student is answering a question at any given time. Therefore; if a group of students is working on the quiz, they can take turns answering the questions or answer the same question repeatedly until it’s answered correctly.
