How I Use It
This product is great for early readers. It can be adjusted to fit the needs of individual students. You can change the settings for the length of the sentences as well as if the sentence has to be put together in order or not. It is limited in the fact that it does not have individual accounts so it is best used in a 1 to 1 environment.
My Take
I think that this app is good but is also limited. For ELL students it can help with sentence structure and vocabulary development. Students with basic word knowledge can use this app. It has audio to go along so it teaches the words along with the sentence structure. It is limited in it's excitement so engagement has been an issue. This would be a good app for use for a warm up activity for 5 minutes or less. Any longer and I think students would loose engagement.
