How I Use It
I love this program. I can do whole-class reading assignments or they can choose by their level and read what interests them. I use it daily. My students are required to read 30 minutes a day and their minutes is their grade. I also post their score on a bulletin board which helps them to be motivated and try to beat their score and others. Healthy competition is a good thing. reading.
My Take
I strongly believe in this program. I love this program because it holds students accountable, it holds their interest by allowing them to choose books they like and at their personal level. I highly recommend LightSail to all teachers who teach
