How I Use It
I have all of of the students signed up to use Lalilo, regardless of their area of need. I have encouraged my students to use it over the summer to practice their decoding and phonics skills, especially since schools have been shut down and they haven't been able to practice in person. It is a very effective program because it not only works on basic phonemic skills and phonics skills, but it is also engaging and my students like the visuals and are motivated to earn the different badges. It is easy to set up and get students connected. It allows students to work at their own pace and alerts you about the concepts students are doing well with and the concepts they need to relearn.
I absolutely love this product. It is a fantastic way for students to practice their reading skills. I will be using a hands-on dyslexia reading program this year, when we return to school, and I know that Lalilo will help not only to reinforce the skills my students will be learning in the dyslexia program, but also prepare them for the new concepts they will be learning. I am also using this program during Extended School Year to help my students maintain and grow their learning.
