How I Use It
This website is amazing for teaching ELA to students K-2 using technology. It is one of the best tech resources to use right now. My 1st grade teachers suggested it, because of rave reviews. They use it for educational printouts. I use it in the computer lab for its ELA and math games. It has a TON of resources and very engaging games that kids will spend hours on. It also has great songs that kids love to sing along to. The app isn't well developed yet, but hopefully in a year, it will fill in all of its More Starfall content.
My Take
More Starfall is the paid portion of Starfall, the most popular kid's website for ELA. It is not free, but it is not as expensive as some other educational licenses. I think it is worth buying a school license if you use it in the computer lab.
