Why is Amira's cursor behind or ahead of my child's reading? (DC)

Cursor Movement

As the child reads aloud, a cursor will move across the text and the color of the text will change from black to grey.

  • If the cursor under the word isn’t moving or is falling behind, encourage your student to continue reading. Amira is recording the reading in the background.
  • If the cursor is ahead of where your student is reading, Amira may be picking up on other sounds. Encourage the student to keep reading at a normal pace and Amira will almost always self-correct.

In either instance, encourage your child to read naturally and do their best to ignore the cursor.

El cursor de Amira se está adelantando a la lectura de mi estudiante.

En ocasiones, Amira escucha a un estudiante leer con anticipación cuando en realidad no lo han hecho. Anime al estudiante para que siga leyendo a un ritmo normal y Amira casi siempre se corregirá a sí misma.
