Farfaria: A Kingdom of Reading for Your Students (Review and GIVEAWAY)

This post includes a giveaway for a 3-month Farfaria Subscription!

I have been using the Farfaria App on my personal iPad for a few months.  It started as a way to get my niece and nephew fall in love with reading.  I would have them use the app whenever they visited and of course, IT WORKED.  Not only did they love that stories could be read to them, but they were learning how to read right along with it, as well.

A few weeks ago, Zach from Farfaria contacted me to review the app and I was so excited because I had already started using the app in my classroom with my students.  We received a new iPad from Donors Choose and Farfaria was one of the first apps that I downloaded. 
Farfaria is set up in “kingdoms” depending on the genre of the story.  Once a kingdom is clicked, students can choose from a multitude of stories.  Stories can be read aloud or students can read to themselves.  Stories can also be saved to favorites.
