How I Use It
I use it to reinforce skills already addressed in the classroom. I use it with my Special needs students ages 9-12. I have also used it at home with my 2nd grade daughter who requires a little extra help for reading.
My Take
I use Starfall with my Special needs students. I use it primarily to reinforce skills that they have already been taught. They do enjoy most of the games on Starfall and it is one of the sites/Apps that they go to first when given a choice. The graphics are fun and engaging and the site is very user friendly.
