How I Use It
I use starfall as one option during computer lab time, as well as on the classroom computer, and during whole group time on the smart board. For whole group, I will often choose the letter we are working on for the week and work through a task with the students to introduce it, so that they will then be able to explore more on their own on the computer. Many students choose starfall during free computer time because it is so much fun.
My Take
Starfall is a great early literacy tool for kindergarten students as well as into the primary grades. Students can use it as they are beginning to learn letters and sounds, and slowly progress through guided and eventually independent reading tools.There are also fun literacy based games and songs to keep them engaged and working with the skills they are building.
