What's new at Freckle April

What an exciting month it's been! We’ve changed our name from Front Row Education to Freckle Education, and we hope the new name will serve as a reminder to our community that every student is a unique individual. To help you reach each of your students at their unique level, we've made several product improvements in the month of April. Take a look!

Comprehension questions for Decodables

K-2 students will now get to answer two short, level-appropriate questions after they finish reading a Decodable. All questions and answers have an audio play-along option to guide students along and reinforce word patterns.
