5th Grade Reading Comprehension Prep is a high quality app. Developers have made it intuitive to use, and have included a range of settings for administrators to control, including text size, background music, and more. Adults can set up a password-protected administrator account that allows control over users, records and several aspects of the app’s performance.


This app does a good job of supporting reading comprehension development. The questions are keyed to a selection of grade 5 Common Core Standards. The answers are highlighted in the text after the student selects a response, allowing learners to see text evidence of the correct answer. Teachers will love that the app can keep records not only of overall performance, but also of specific questions and errors, allowing for focused remedial help if needed.

The stories are age-appropriate, engaging, and in a variety of formats, including fiction, nonfiction, personal letter, recipe, and more. The questions are randomized, so students can reuse stories if you wish.


This app is not intended for entertainment.


5th Grade Reading Comprehension Prep costs $2.99 in the App Store. That is a great value. The app offers focused reading comprehension practice that will help students prepare to meet Common Core Standards.

Child Friendliness

This app is child friendly for the intended age group. It has a password-protected administrative area. There are links to more apps and to email the developer on the main screen that are slightly protected by an instruction to “press and hold,” which fifth graders would easily be able to circumvent, but there would be little reason for them to do so.

  • Protected administrative area 
  • NO social media
  • NO 3rd party ads
  • NO in-app purchase
  • YES “more apps” (protected, but visible)
