16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | English | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."

There will always be new apps and new ways to do things. One of the biggest learning curves I had was to seek out the advice of others instead of trying everything myself. This list has a number of great suggestions but make sure you know what it is you want from the app/tool before you begin looking.

Shahana is the first of a series of books for readers from 11-15 called Through My Eyes.  Each of the books is about children living in war zones. This novel, set in Kashmir, portrays the emotions and the resourcefulness of children affected by war and may elicit some understanding of why people seek to move from one country to another under these circumstances.
