'Fact or Opinion' builds an important comprehension skill in a fun, game-like environment. All kids need to know how to interpret what they read -- it is a fact, or is it someone's opinion?
This skill is especially important as they reach the age of accessing information from the internet.
***** 5 Stars - I like how this app teaches kids how to look for the clue words that can identify a fact or opinion. No other app I've used has done that.
***** 5 Stars - Lots of practice. My son loves the Reward Center. Even I did a few levels so I could earn some coins to play!
'Fact or Opinion' is targeted to children in Grades 2-5. Beginning readers in earlier grades can also benefit from the targeted skill development.
The focus of 'Fact or Opinion' is teaching kids how to identify whether a statement is a fact or opinion.
This vital skill is built incrementally. Early levels focus on thinking about how to prove and fact/opinion and also how to identify the clue words that are indicative of a fact or opinion. Later levels include timers to ensure fluency.
The app includes more than 300 examples for extensive practice.
