How I Use It
We use it as a major part of our Language Arts program. One of the best features is that the students record themselves reading the passages. Then the teacher can go back and listen any time to access progress. Teachers can leave messages for the student which is very helpful. The program can be used at home and parents can leave comments, also. At this point the only improvement I would want it the ability to choose specific lists of sight words to practice.
My Take
This encourages reading. Our teachers like it better than the Accelerated Reading Program and it is less expensive. The program is for students up through 6th grade. We have found that it is definitely challenging enough for our students.
