Mouse skills with students at this age can be a barrier for many, but some students got a lot out of this activity.

My Take

This product is likely best suited as a practice activity for ELL and low literacy learners nearer the end of grade 1 or in grade 2. It provides an opportunity to practice recognition of basic phonic sounds and introductory spelling. The pace of this practice is somewhat slow and may discourage higher achieving students.

How I Use It

I used it in a general grade 1 class and many of the learners found navigating too difficult due to their limited mouse skills. The ones that were able to navigate found the activity engaging, and had lots of opportunities to practice their phonics and simple spelling.
