If you have Chrome installed on computers at your school consider checking out this app called Fluency Tutor. The website states FluencyTutor "is an easy-to-use, time-saving leveled reading and assessment tool that helps busy teachers support struggling readers. Teachers pick reading passages based on content, lexile level or reading age and share with individual students or groups via Google Drive."

Students may access material from home or school and can record passages. Text-to-speech, a dictionary, a picture dictionary and translation tools are also available.

The teacher dashboard and the student area for interaction is free. If you want to be able to see analytics, track progress, and more there is a charge of $99 per year (for teachers).

Tools such as this are great free resources for many students. You might also want to check out Read&Write for Google.
