How I Use It
I use this in classrooms where there are a group of low level readers. Typically they need additional work on identifying site words. I use the app (or web based version) when it is their turn for the iPads or computer. This allows the teacher and I to differentiate instruction for these students' needs.
My Take
I really like this app. It is simple and has game elements which hide (from the students) the fact that it is a simple drill type game. It is perfect for the skill which it addresses. Enough bells ans whistles to get student attention. But the "fun stuff" does not detract from the main thing...identifying words as they are called out.
