How I Use It
I am a special education teacher in a full inclusion setting. I have two groups of students who need direct phonics instruction, but they learn at different rates and are working on different skills. We use lalilo during reading time. When I am working with one phonics group, the other goes to lalilo.com Once they have completed a little independent reading. It is motivating for the kiddos, and gives them the individualized phonics practice and immediate feedback they need.
Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this teaching tool. My favorite part is that it very quickly finds a student's level and individualizes its lessons to the student. I like that I can see what skills kids are stuck on (if any) so I can directly address it with students outside of the program. It's also very motivating for them. It's beautifully and simply laid out and the kids like the goal of going through the different lands. They are very motivated by the printable certificates. The login process is very simple, so it helps me focus on teaching, while helping the kiddos become independent.
