Tech Tuesday: Apps to make every day Literacy Day

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- Caleb Drolshagen from AT&T spoke with NBC15's Leigh Mills about literacy apps that parents can use to help with building their children's literacy.

According to dosomething.org two-thirds of students who can't read proficiently by the end of fourth grade will end up in jail or on welfare.

With International Literacy Day coming up on Saturday, Drolshagen said that building a literacy habit takes a little bit of time out of each day but can make a long-lasting impact.

Here are the apps Drolshagen and AT&T compiled that can help turn every day into a literacy day:

Ukloo
Playtales Gold! Kids' Books
MYBOOKS
Mad Libs
iBooks
Kids Learn to Read Lite
