How I Use It
I used this with my 2nd grade class to reinforce word sounds. I do not think that this would be a good website to use regularly with the same group since the games become repetitive. This is a good program to use with kids that can self direct. Once the kids got started with the website, they were able to work at their own pace. The sounds and interactive aspects really got the kids engaged.
My Take
My students LOVED this website. It was very easy to enroll the kids under my account. They have a great feature that will allow you to easily print out a card for each student with the website info, their user name, and password. Headphones are a must, if you are doing this with the whole class at a time. This is a good website to have the kids go onto for the end of a class.
