How I Use It
I use this site on the computers in my third grade classroom for students who are not yet able to read books independently. I think the phonics instruction helps move them along and gives them a feeling that they can work independently. I choose the letter sounds or combinations each students needs to work on and once I get them started I am able to work with small groups during reading workshop while my most struggling readers are getting their needs met without interrupting guided reading. Win - win - win!
I wish there was a way to track what individual students are doing on Starfall.
