“What is FarFaria you ask? Well, let me just tell you it is the most ‘Far Out’ app I’ve used in my classroom!
What - a group of boys sitting this close together and not playing or being silly? Not during FarFaria time!

“The first day, my kids read silently, totally engaged for 1 hour! Yes – you read that right an entire hour. I could not bring myself to make them stop. So instead I used that time to pull kids individually and do some end of the quarter assessments.” -Amy, Teaching in Blue Jeans

“The best thing about this app is that it allows the child to read it independently or there is a feature that will read it to them. … When you pick your book this is when you have the option to read it alone or have it read to you. … This is such an amazing way to help students gain a love for reading.” -Heather, Second Grade Perks

“I have 2 iPads in my classroom and each day my students use them during reading and math rotations. One of the favorite iPad activities is “Listen to Reading” and FarFaria is an easy fit for this activity.” Teacher Gone Digital
“I have two kids at home, a 4 and 8 year old. Both fell in love with this app! Both my kids love reading, but tie it in with the iPad and they think they are playing games. … The books are so engaging and there is something for everyone! My little mini-me loved the sharks. We both have a minor obsession with all things SHARK!” -Laura, Differentiation Station
