How I Use It
I use this resource during my intervention time with my class. When my students finish their morning work they immediately get on Lalilo for phonics practice. Lalilo helps me feel confident that while I have a small group for interventions the remainder of the students are working on individualized skill practice to help them grow as well. It is the most meaningful resource I have found to assist my students in phonics as far as independent practice. I love the detailed reports I am able to see after they are finished, assisting me also with my individualized instruction for that student as well. The students are excited every morning to be able to get on Lalilo, and the growth I am seeing in the students is amazing!
I absolutely love everything about Lalilo! I love the individualizations, the engagement it has with my students and the growth they have made so far by using it. It has also been a helpful tool for me in my instruction as well as it may pick up on a specific digraph or blend that a student is struggling with, so then I can start a guided reading group discussing a specific sound or blend children in that group have struggled with. It is also helpful in the fact that it has assisted my students in getting adjusted to assessments on the iPad , and assisted them in prep for the new Istation assessments they have to do as they are similar in nature. My students can not wait to get on Lalilo every morning ! I also love that even though I have the free version- it does not hold any skills back from my students ! The students have access to every material and skill on Lalilo. I only currently have access to seeing the phonics side of the results but the students are working on sight words, comprehension, vocabulary and more. I am very glad I found this resource!
