Google's New 'Read Along' App Can Help Elementary School Kids Improve Their Reading Skills
If you’re at home with a little one that’s just starting to learn to read, Google has a new free resource you can use to help them along.
This week Google launched “Read Along,” an app for elementary school students that helps them practice reading skills. The app is based on Google’s existing app, Bolo, that launched in India last year.
The app has an in-app reading buddy that will listen to your child read out loud and offer them help if they start to struggle with a word of phrase. When they’re successful in reading a passage they can earn stars, giving the app a bit of a game-like quality to it.
