How I Use It
Starfall was used as a whole group daily and independent practice in our classroom on a daily basis. We used the app and computer site to practice vowel and consonant sounds. It assisted the students by the use of repetitive songs and visual cues. Many students would refer back to the songs or catch phrases in order to remember certain sounds during reading material. They would frequently request to work on the site during after-school and inside recess time.
My Take
I do not encourage of the Starfall app because of the cost and limit of material. The site is offered online free and has many more resources available. I absolutely love the site that is offered online.
