How I Use It
I used it more when I taught first grade. I used it a few years ago when I had some low ELL students for them to practice on gaining more words and language during readers workshop.
My Take
It allows beginning readers to self select and navigate through a lot of different literacy activities that the kids find fun. From letters that bounce around to finding words for things in a bedroom to puzzles. There is not a login so it does not remember you, but the kids are actively engaged. There are students who I have who have grown into much better readers who still want to use the website because it is fun and I have to encourage them to try out some of the other websites instead.
