Ignite a passion for reading
While many schools are excited to use SpoonRead as a fundraiser, lots of teachers have discovered that it’s a powerful tool to support their independent reading program where the book becomes the game – no fundraising required. Our main goal at SpoonRead is to make reading fun again. We want to bring back the pleasure and joy that comes from literature. Our app builds fluency, tracks comprehension, and expands academic vocabulary. Students can read at their own levels and become confident and enthusiastic about reading. SpoonRead is both an application and management tool which monitors daily reading between students and teacher/parent.
Frequent checking for understanding is crucial for any reading program to be successful. While other reading software has students reading entire books before asking any questions to check for understanding, SpoonRead embeds ongoing relevant comprehension checks after each “spoonful”, ensuring that kids understand what they are reading as they go. SpoonRead allows students to go back and reread a spoonful before they answer a question.
Students love reward systems and games. This is a great way for them to become confident, consistent readers with a twist of fun. Students get instant feedback on their progress and collect coins for prizes.

I’ve been teaching fourth grade for 17 years. In all that time, I’ve never seen anything that was better at getting kids excited to read. I love it.
