How I Use It
I have used this app with my own preschool children. Both of them enjoy the opportunity to learn using the computer or my mobile device. It's great that it's not flash-based because they can use the iPad or a computer. They use it when they don't have homework but still need enrichment. One of my daughters is in preschool and the other is in kindergarten; so it really helps that the lessons and activities are at each of their own levels. They enjoy earning tickets when they participate and answer correctly. With their tickets, they are able to purchase items for their room or outdoor space. They love it!
My Take
If I was a preschool or kindergarten teacher, I would use this website for reinforcement and practice of basic skills. I would have them use it individually because it works best when it is individualized. I would also reward students who have mastered skills and objectives the opportunity to use the app for extension, enrichment, and the opportunity to earn more tickets. This website would be great for a computer station. The only concern I have is if it's available for a class purchase instead of individual basis.
