Learning Ally provides support for all of my students as they complete the Barton program and beyond. It allows them to hear great literature in order to build vocabulary above their reading level as well as to enjoy the same books their peers are reading. They can hear textbook material being used in the classroom. By providing an auditory component, students can increase reading comprehension skills through listening and have a chance to build schema, developing their understanding of content area knowledge and concepts. Best of all, my students really enjoy reading by ear and can’t wait to get into their next book!
