How does WriteReader work?

Students using WriteReader (with or without the help of an adult) will hear letters and the sounds they make as they author their own books. The process allows them to become authors while learning to read by writing.

How is WriteReader different than other writing platforms?

Unlike other writing tools, WriteReader teaches students to read by writing and experimenting with letters and their sounds. Very young students can become authors with the help of a teacher or parent before they know how to read on their own. The active process of creating books is scientifically proven to help children learn to read and write.

Does WriteReader work with iPads?

Yes, you can use WriteReader through the Safari browser through the iPad. Open your Safari browser on your iPad and go to app.writereader.com

Is student privacy protected?

Student privacy is always protected when using WriteReader. There is no student data collected in order to use WriteReader. All students need in order to join is the teacher’s class code and their first name. There are no advertisements and third parties never have access to any student information that is provided in WriteReader. The Pixabay safe search within the program filters for age appropriate images. When students create a book, it is automatically saved and visible on their class bookshelf. Only teachers have the ability to publish students’ work by creating a sharable link of the book. View our privacy and security policy here: https://www.writereader.com/privacy-policy-security/

What if a student forgets their username?

Teachers can view the usernames of each student in their class from the dashboard.

How do I get a class code?

If you are a parent wanting to help your child to log on, you need to get the class code from your child’s teacher. If your child is not using WriteReader in school, you can create your own account.

How do I change my password?

I have forgotten my password, what do I do?
