Attention keeping and prioritising comprehension
I love how it is easily accessible to children they are able to choose texts that interest them but are at their zone of proximal learning. Children love earning badges and it makes reading time extra fun. During lockdown Lightsail has been even more useful in getting learners to read every day and have access to thousands of books which would never have been possible with what they have assess to in their homes normally.
How I Use It
We had several classes using it for half an hour 3 times a week and we encouraged learners to use it at home after school. We use it as quiet independent reading time. We find that learners progress well with dedicated independent reading time timetabled into their week.
