If you don't have student computers in your class, this system would also be great to send home as homework, use as a center, or even work on whole group. If you're new to close reading, it can be a valuable resource to engage your students whole group while you walk through the process (and it reminds you what to do each read, so you can learn along with the students!).

When they arrive at the after school class, they are excited to quickly get a laptop, get logged on, and start working through their text.

Snap! Digital Reading Program : 128 leveled readers

Kelly Tenkely
Tech Integration Specialist

Originally published on iLearn Technology

Snap! Digital Reading Program is a set of interactive leveled books that can be printed, viewed on iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, interactive whiteboards or classroom computer. All of the books in the program have been developed to help teachers meet requirements in the Common Core Standards in vocabulary and comprehension through the use of direct instruction, close reading, modeling, guided and independent practice, and text-dependent questioning.

Click to read this review

What it is: Snap! Digital Reading Program is a set of interactive leveled books that can be printed, viewed on iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, interactive whiteboards or classroom computer.  All of the books in the program have been developed to help teachers meet requirements in the Common Core Standards in vocabulary and comprehension through the use of direct instruction, close reading, modeling, guided and independent practice, and text-dependent questioning.  Each leveled reader has a digital interactive version that includes fluency exercises, comprehension and multiple-choice type assessments.  As your students read, you can track what they are reading, view the digital assessments and performance reports.  These reports include information about CLOZE scores, multiple choice scores, and fluency.  You can also see information about the  last book they read (word counts, difficulty, words read correctly, etc.).  Snap! Digital Reading Program also includes lesson plans associated with each book.  While the program isn't a free one, a year-long subscription to all materials (interactive ebooks for student, printable PDF versions of the books/lessons/other materials, and the data analytics for all of your students is just $89.  Pretty reasonable for access for every student in your class!

How to use the Snap! Digital Reading Program in your classroom: I've mentioned this before, but it is worth repeating: when you have a limited classroom library (due to space, as a new teacher, budget, etc.) ebooks are such a great way to instantly expand that library exponentially!  Snap! helps you do that and more.  Not only are you able to offer your students additional access to reading material, they have the added benefit of getting interactive books that give you data so that you can better guide students in choosing books that will help them fall in love with reading.  The readers can also be used for reading interventions, guided reading, shared reading and tutoring.  The leveled readers are for students in grades k-8, so even if you have a super advanced second grade student, you can continually challenge them.

Snap! Digital Reader Library iLearn Technology

The flexibility of this program is fantastic!  I've long been a fan of Learning A-Z for their printable books, but they are limited to a printout.  With Snap! you have the option of printing out books, but students can also access them from home device, on the iPad, Kindle Fire, Android, interactive whiteboard, or classroom computers.  The eBook version of the reader includes audio, photo slideshows, glossary terms, videos, fun facts, interactive maps and animations.  The PDF version includes lesson plans, alphabet book, word books, assessment materials and individual student record books.  Regardless of how much technology you have available in your classroom, the Snap! program works.

In a one to one setting you get the best of all worlds.  Every student in your class instantly has access to 128 quality interactive books and activities.  Did I mention $89?! That is a great deal!  You also have the ability for offline pdf books that can be sent home for extra practice.  When I taught second grade, my students loved having a print copy of the ebooks that they read in class.  It was always a treat to have those printed to color and share at home.

In a one or two device classroom, you can set up a reading center for students to cycle through.  Students can visit the center once or twice a week to read.

Model reading strategies for the whole class using an interactive whiteboard or projector-connected computer.  Students can practice reading along and be introduced to new vocabulary.

Tips: The iPad version is not called "Snap!" Digital Reader.  The app you will download to access the interactive ebook library is Mobl21 HD.

Snap! Digital Reader Library iLearn Technology Price of app: Free* ($89 yearly subscription required!)

Device: iPad with iOS 5.0 or later, Kindle Fire, Android, computer

A few days ago, I received a Demo code to check out SNAP! Learning, a reading program developed by Sullivan Learning Systems. After doing a little research, I found out that the company is located in Fresno, where I live.  I made an appointment to meet Mark Sullivan, the President and Founder of Sullivan Learning Systems. There's nothing like a personal demonstration of a product to generate excitement!

What I like about SNAP Learning:

  • The titles cover grade levels Pre-K through 8th grade
  • Books can be read on the iPad or printed out in PDF format
  • The iPad version contains interactive elements
  • Scores on Cloze, Multiple Choice, and Fluency activities on the iPad are uploaded to the website Measure section
  • There are comprehensive lesson plans for the teacher, available as PDFs on the website, or on the iPad when you are logged in as the teacher
  • There are many non-fiction stories, especially at the upper grade levels
  • The audio for the stories uses a clear and pleasant voice
  • The visuals are supportive rather than distracting
  • The support via email or phone is excellent
  • Color versions of the books, lesson plans, and record books are available for individual purchase
  • The app is available for Android and Kindle Fire also (I only reviewed the iPad version)
  • DRA, Fountas & Pinnell, Rigby, and Reading Recovery, and Grade Levels are provided for Pre-K through 1st Grade
  • Lexile and Flesch-Kincaid readability levels are provided for 2 through 8th Grade
  • Information on CCSS (Common Core State Standards) Text Complexity is provided (Qualitative, Quantitative, and Reader & Task)
  • Books can be projected on the White Board for large group lessons
  • Individual student and group performance can be tracked on the website

What I would like to see:

  • A comprehensive guide for using the website and iPad app together.  Video tutorials are in development; I would also like to see this in written form.  
  • Clearer directions regarding logging in. I got confused about which username/password to use when I wanted to log-in to the iPad app as the teacher. There's one for logging into the app, and one for logging into the website.  After I logged into the app, and after I selected a story, I had to use the website log-in info to access the teacher lesson plan.  This wasn't obvious or intuitive
  • A reminder to use the iPad in landscape mode for optimal viewing, especially when using the teacher lesson plan
  • Hot links for the table of contents for each book on the iPad app
  • PDF versions of the Word Book, Alphabet Book, Placement Test booklet, and Student Record books
  • Easier navigation using the 'dots' at the top of the page they are not always responsive, at least on my iPad.  There is a pointing finger at the bottom of each page that can be tapped to scroll through a story if necessary.  The dots on the web version work well with my mouse.
  • Smoother operation of the Data Analytics between the iPad and the website

 

SNAP products available

This week, I tried out the web version with one of my tutoring clients.  She lives across the country in Chicago.  Using Skype screen-sharing, I was able to show her the web version from my desktop. Cool!   Being able to use the interactive elements with her was quite handy.  She read the fluency page and I recorded her score.  (I had to email Ryan, at SNAP Learning, for directions to get that score to show up in the Data tab very simple I just needed to click on the muscle man circus performer). My client liked the interactive map and other similar features. I also sent her a PDF of the story so she can read it for practice when we are off-line.  I'm looking forward to using the interactive graphic organizer and CLOZE paragraphs with her during our next lesson.

 

Snap e version

 

This could be a useful product for tutoring and homeschooling families, since it includes a range of levels and ways to measure progress.  Use in the classroom would probably depend on the flexibility of each school district for using a supplemental curriculum.

SNAP Learning's interactive books are well-designed, interesting stories.  Experienced classroom educators are behind the development of the product. There are some kinks to be worked out in the implementation, but in the meantime, the company is extremely supportive, answering even the tiniest question promptly.
