How I Use It
This is a great app for struggling readers and writers. I use it with student are having trouble reading and matching words 1-to-1. It can teach some good beginning reading skills like directionality, 1-to-1 matching, and sight word recognition. This App would be great as a center in K. It would also be great for ELL student to acquire vocabulary.
My Take
While this App has great skills to teach early reading skills, students get bored with this App after a while. I would not make this App an everyday App. Since this App offers valuable practice with reading skills I would make this App a couple times a week practice so the students don't get turned off by it's repetition.
