How I Use It
I used it in an individual setting for children that finished their work early. The students were excited to do the application but could not do it unless they had an adult helping them (which defied the purpose of why I was using it).
My Take
I was very disappointed in the application and what it offered to Kindergarten children. It was a little difficult for the kids to be able to do on their own and many of them got frustrated with the process. I did like the colorful nature of the program, it was very inviting and appeared as if it was going to be a "fun" and exciting program. I think it might be good for older children but the prek-k rating is stretching it a bit. It is a very creative application and promotes that creativity but just at a little more difficult level than Kindergardners can do independently.
