Reading and sharing stories is a fundamental part of being human. Stories expose us to a world beyond the one we live in, promoting understanding, entertaining us and bringing enjoyment. In fact recent studies have shown that children who read regularly and for pleasure generally achieve better outcomes in a wide range of subjects including maths.
While the importance of being able to read well is not in doubt, the seemingly effortless activity described as “good reading” is actually made up of a set of highly complex, skills and abilities. This is where our new reading and performance reading app Zippy Shine can help.
Zippy Shine (video below) is packed full of mini-stories for children ages 7 to 11 to read aloud and record and they’ll be amazed as they discover their own name appearing in every story!
This brings a range of benefits for the children such as:
- the ability to evaluate their own performance
- develops the concepts of expression and intonation
- recognise and respond to punctuation in a meaningful context.
And Zippy Shine is not just about stories, there are jokes too!
Children can try their hand at reading questions and delivering a punchline with expert timing! Once their performance is perfected, they can play it back for friends and family with their avatar taking the stage! What’s more, children who sign in to Zippy Shine with their Skoolbo account can share their masterpiece with their parents and teacher to receive valuable feedback and some well deserved applause!
Zippy Shine is a fun, enjoyable way to help children become confident, fluent, motivated readers. Who knows you may discover that the next master storyteller or comic genius is closer than you think!
