Are Whales Smart, or What?, the new app in the My Word! Reader series is designed for underachieving students who struggle with literacy skills. The high-interest, fact-based, but reader-friendly story becomes the vehicle for challenging student thinking, while engaging them in a series of increasingly difficult activity games that build vocabulary and develop phonics, word analysis, spelling and writing skills. Also appropriate for ESL students, the app is self-instructional -- thus providing teachers with a productive, and cost effective learning resource.
