How I Use It
I use it to reinforce necessary early literacy skills as well as teaching babies h.ow to navigate and develop their fine motor skills
My Take
I wish that the kids were required to show mastery of early skills in order to progress into higher skills. I find the students like the "games" that accompany the higher skills but just keep clicking until they get the right answer without necessarily learning.
