How I Use It
As a resource teacher, I love to use Lalilo. I start each class session with time on Lalilo. After the session, I review the student's data so that I know what I need to have them work on. Lalilo lets me know what a student is struggling on. I love how Lalilo keeps progress on my students and sends a report to me every week. I love to send the reports home for the parents. It provides them with activities that they can do at home. I wish that it provided more guidance to the students in blending. I think that it goes to quickly into reading long stories before they are ready.
Overall, I love how Lalilo works. My students are interested in using the program and it keeps them engaged. It provides me with information that I need for my lessons as well as providing information for my student's Individualized Educational Plans. Lalilo provides detailed information such as what letters and sounds my students know as well as basic sight words that they are able to read. It makes grouping students by levels easier. Lalilo gives me the feedback that I need to move my students forward without over testing them. I would like Lalilo to give students more opportunities to blend out words before reading the long story at the end. Students often just skip over the story. Lalilo should have the students read the story to the program and have the program do a running record with a short story.
