How I Use It
I use the section of matching beginning sounds to pictures in the first part of the year or for one on one interventions with my students. I also allow my students to use the app during academic choice time. The students often choose to use the app because it is a fun game that allows them to interact and be actively engaged in their learning.
My Take
Students are quickly drawn to this app, they love the design and simplicity. The app is a basic start to game based learning for young students. In one section the app allows students to match beginning sounds with pictures and in another the students are learning simple spanish words. This app could have a greater potential if it had an extension to it's learning content. The app needs to develop a deeper content area to keep students engaged and moving forward in their learning. It would be a wonderful app if students were able to move progressively throughout the app once completing a learning target.
