What if your favorite books could hear you read, help you—just when you needed it—and support you as you become a strong, confident reader? What if the invisible work of reading was visible, so kids or students felt seen for their work? This cool tool empowers kids to become confident readers, independently. Rally Reader is an AI-powered reading platform that hears kids as they read, identifies errors, and provides real-time support. Like any good coach, Rally encourages, tracks progress, and gets measurable results. How it works:
- Pick a great book from their shop. (They work with all the major publishers and charge standard prices for books. No mark-ups.)
- Read aloud and get instant feedback (as if you were reading with a parent or teacher.)
- Instantly track reading stats on your auto-updating Dashboard.
- Keep parents/teachers up to date with notifications.
You can download it for free from the iOS app store.
Interestingly, the platform’s current streak holder has read with Rally 382 days in a row. In one year with Rally, her reading jumped four grade levels. (She was reading below grade level and is now reading three years above grade level.) Finally, an interesting fun fact according to Rally: Did you know that 1000 high-frequency words make up 75% of the words in English books? Rally gamifies those words, enabling kids to collect them as they read, and track progress in the Word Wiz tile on their Dashboard. Mastering those 1000 words is an efficient way to boost fluency. Rally Reader earned a Cool Tool Award (finalist) for “Best Literacy/Reading Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2023 from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
