Teacher Review for Lalilo

My 1st graders love hearing themselves read words that Lalilo recorded and played back for them. It takes phonics to a whole other level when they can actually compare what they hear themselves saying to the correct pronunciation.

How I Use It
I teach in a computer lab and see the entire building Kindergarten through 5th grade. I have recently started using Lalilo with my 1st grade students. We recently added webcams to our desktop computers and I thought this would be a great chance to test them out. It works best when I spread kids out a bit and have them sit at every other computer so that the microphone only picks up the student that is directly speaking into the mic.
My Take
I love the way this program has a demo student, I wish every program did this. It allows me to demonstrate what the students will be doing without posing as a student or worrying about messing up an actual students progress. I appreciate that directions are read to students and repeatable with just a click. I do wish that I could pick the school code that my students use instead of a password. I know that eventually my students will get it memorized, and it is much easier than individual students usernames and passwords, but I would love the chance to make it something personal and memorable to my school.
