How I Use It
I would use this product either for homework to to help those students whose reading skills were behind the rest of the class. Because it is personalized, it would help students who are lacking and give them the opportunity to catch up.
My Take
Overall I really like this app for kids around ages 2-9. It's great for kids who are just learning the alphabet all the way up to beginning level reading. It takes into account the child's interests and reading level to provide them with a lesson completely geared towards them. The app also provide's parents with updates as their child develops more reading skills. Personally, I wouldn't use this app for lessons in my classroom but I may suggest it as homework or have a space for kids with lower reading levels to work on it. The one downside to this app is there is a monthly charge after the free trial is used.
