How I Use It
I would use this app to help children who are just learning how to read or for children who may be struggling with reading. I think this app is great in the way it is very interactive by using sounds and drawings to help engage the child. I think this really keeps the child interested by the way they have to pay attention to what is being read to them in order to then draw what they heard. This engages children in thinking skills even beyond the direct text. This app is free and accessible to everyone and can be used in both the classroom and at home to help engage a child in all the fun of learning to read.
My Take
My overall opinion for this app is it a useful and fun tool to help engage a young child who is new to reading in wanting to read and perfecting their reading skills. This app is great for children in preschool through early elementary (really anyone in the beginning stages of learning to read.) I believe this app is easy enough for a child to learn to use on their own, so they can practice without the supervision of a child. Overall, I would recommend this app for children to practice their reading.
