How I Use It
I use Starfall with primary students to teach basic reading skills and phonics. Students really enjoy the interactive games and activities that scaffold and build on previous knowledge. As a learning tool, this is a great tool to review concepts.. If used as a supplement for direct reading instruction then this is a good choice to use with children.
My Take
Overall, Starfall is a great filler and not a replacement for direct instruction. Using Stafall to review concepts and give students opportunities to practice skill sets is the primary reason to use Starfall.
