Read Along

Reading Along to the words on a page while listening to a narrator fosters confidence and builds decoding skills


Narrating (reading aloud) stories with your own voice strengthens memory and boosts comprehension

More books, more often

Read any time of day to earn stars and navigate to exciting worlds while helping other kids become better readers, too.



Read for Good:  Learners become storytellers as they share their voice to our global library, in turn, helping others to learn to read.

Learners earn volunteer hours

As students narrate books for others to hear, they earn volunteer hours automatically. Certificates can be downloaded to celebrate reading, or submit for service hours.

Simbi has a process of evaluating'narrations'
for the Simbi Global Library

  1. A narration is donated to the Simbi Global Library
  2. The narration is evaluated by the Simbi AI to make sure that it has a 90% accuracy rate.
  3. If the narration has a 90% accuracy rate it is then sent to our evaluation team that listens to every single narrator. They are listening for any oddities like a dog barking or cars in the background that will reduce the quality of the recording.
  4. If the narration passes our human test then it is added to the global library
  5. Once the narration is added to the library the reader/learner will receive a notice that their recordings have been added to the library and they can go to the specific book and see/hear the narration that they donated to the Simbi library.

Simbi's Reading Levels : Emerging Readers, Grade 1 to 8


There are fluency passages for each grade level to benchmark reading levels. Our literacy experts carefully level each book according to Fountas & Pinell’s text descriptions, as well as Adrienne Gear’s Gear Levels.

We have a helpful Simbi Reading Levels Correlation Chart to help you switch from many other reading programs!

Simbi uses Words Correct per Minute (WCPM) scores to align with grade level standards.

What is a Words Correct Per Minute (WCPM) score?

A WCPM score is a ratio of correctly-read words to total-attempted words divided by the time taken to read the passage.

How does the scoring work?

Simbi uses industry standard oral reading rates, as determined by Hasbrouck and Tindal, to gauge readings on the Simbi platform.

Please refer to the chart below to gauge spoken words correct per minute against North American school grade levels.

Simbi's technology is always improving, but WCPM scored can be affected by self-corrections, background noise, and audio quality of recordings, Simbi recommends teachers use professional judgment in assessment of student reading.
