Pros: The word list is robust for young readers.

Cons: There is no direct instruction of correlation of word and syllabication rules.

The characters are charming and the word lists are appropriate for young readers developing their phonemic awareness skills. Teachers can use this tool as a reading comprehension or decoding station during language instruction. Students should first understand how to break words into separate phonemic syllables before using this tool; teachers should not depend on the game to teach the technique explicitly.
