How I Use It
I have used this product as an one-on-one activity for my small group lessons. My students are into it at first but quickly loses interest in the game. They learn a lot about shapes and how to recognize shapes in the real world but it does not interest them and hold their attention.
My Take
My overall opinion is that the product does it job but is not as interesting to the children has some of the other apps I use. I think this can be fixed by adding more challenging features for the advanced learners. Also tracking progress would be a great improvement.
