Press Release - On the occasion of the Hooked on School Days that will start on February 13, Alloprof launches two completely revamped interactive tools to help students with reading comprehension and spelling.

These tools are timely, as a Leger survey shows that French is the most difficult school subject to children in elementary and secondary school. Among parents of Quebec school-aged children surveyed, 40 % identify French as the most challenging subject, well ahead of math, which came in second at 18 %.

Learning through Quebec works

Alloprof offers a new version of its Grimoire game which allows you to discover and grow creatures by answering reading questions. Alloprof has improved the educational structure of the game, making it even more visually appealing and fun, by adding new types of interactive questions that promote better student progress. Now available on all platforms, the game gives children the opportunity to meet local authors such as Simon Boulerice, Gilles Vigneault, Jacques Newashish and Annie Groovie.

"Reading comprehension is certainly the most important skill to develop during school; when you have difficulty understanding a text, you necessarily have more challenges in all subjects," explains Annie Harvey, spokesperson for the charitable organization Alloprof. "We know that giving children a taste for reading at an early age is a guarantee of academic success, and games can be a great way to interest young people who are more reluctant," she adds.

An exercise adapted to the youngest

new interactive exercise also helps primary school students to be independent when reviewing the spelling of vocabulary words. The exercise is based on a list created by Alloprof, the teacher or the parent. It allows the child to write the words they hear on a smartphone, tablet or computer with feedback on whether the word is spelled correctly or not.

Alloprof supports parents concerned about school retention

On the eve of the Hooked on School Days, Alloprof would like to remind you that complete files on the perseverance and the school dropout are available on their website. They are filled with practical tips for parents, and even grandparents, to help children throughout their school career. In addition, a survey of 350 parents conducted by Alloprof reveals that their greatest concern about their child's school career is motivation and perseverance (36 %)followed by stress and performance anxiety (25 %).

With the labour shortage and more and more high school students entering the workforce, it can be more difficult for some students to understand the relevance of finishing school," explains Annie Harvey. Our practical tips and personalized services help parents find the right answers to questions such as "What is the best way to get a job? But what's the point of school?" or " Why am I learning this?"The purpose of the program is to encourage their children to stay in school and to prevent them from dropping out of school.

The Alloprof Parents team will also hold a Facebook Live February 15 at 8:00 p.m. to give tips to help kids persevere and stay motivated, and answer some questions.

A contest to encourage students to ask for help

For some young people, it is the accumulation of small problems and misunderstandings that break the motivation and cause discouragement. To encourage them to ask for help and to ask their school questions, Alloprof offers the Winning to help each other until April 30. By asking their question in his Mutual aid zoneIn the "Help Forum", a seven-day-a-week, professionally moderated help forum, students can win one of three $500 $ scholarships.

"Our Help Zone has been gaining popularity with Quebec youth since its launch. It allows students who may be more embarrassed to ask their questions in confidence and allows others to answer the questions that are there. It increases the confidence of young people," concludes Annie Harvey.
