What is BOOKR Class?

BOOKR Class features advanced multimedia content produced fully in-house that combines original animation, music, interactive games, storytelling, animated flashcards with 4,000 words, and a vast library of children’s books from prestigious publishers including Oxford University Press, Albert Whitman & Company, and Blue Apple Publishing to deliver a first-of-its-kind ESL tool for both classroom and home use.

Organized in multiple levels that specifically address all age groups from kindergarten through eighth grade, BOOKR Classutilizes Accidental Learning as a basis for its comprehensive approach to teaching English.  A burgeoning new category of instruction, Accidental Learning occurs when the student is immersed in a range of activities and experiences outside of the scope of traditional instruction that leads to learning.

This educational app promotes learning English vocabulary and structure as a by-product of enjoying the app’s diverse interactive elements.  To continuously measure each child’s reading ability, It employs Lexile® Framework for Reading learning measurement technology.  The app is also breaking new ground with its inclusion of flashcards powered by AI-based speech analysis that enables kids to practice pronunciation and receive instant feedback.

For the classroom, BOOKR Class provides teachers with a complete teacher’s dashboard that can monitor progress and help design custom sessions.  Designed for total flexibility, it presents more than 100 lesson plans, activity tips, printables, and a corresponding search engine providing teachers with instant access to the most thematically appropriate supplementary lessons for their class.
