FarFaria Reading App Membership Give Away!

Hey friends! Today I wanted to share a new reading app called "FarFaria". I've been playing around with this app on an iPad and it's really great. In my second grade classroom my students used iPads to practice word work but this reading app would allow your students to use technology for reading to themselves, reading to someone or listening to reading. Great for daily five classrooms! 

Here's what I like about this app:

*The stories are leveled PK-4

*There is an audio feature that highlights the words as they are read (really great for emergent readers)

*You can save stories for offline reading

*The app will recommend books for readers based on books they choose

*The books are separated according to genre and within each genre the books are leveled 

*The auto play button is great for early readers who won't know when to turn pages

*There is an adorable option for a "Photo Finish" that the kids will love!

Here is a screen shot I took of the different genres:

Here's a shot of the "photo finish" option, so cute!!

My mother-in-law helped me review the app. She was a great sport and let me take her picture! Ha!

My mother-in-law loved the app as well! She thinks it would be great to have on her iPad to read stories with my 20 month old son. 

If your district purchases apps for your classroom, this is a great app to ask for. There are over 600 books and 5 new books are added each week. Today FarFaria has offered to give away a free 3 month membership to one of my readers. In order to win you must follow Teachin' Little Texans and FarFaria on Facebook. You can earn extra entries by blogging about this give away or sharing this give away on your facebook page, this is not mandatory but will get you extra entries!
