Low literacy
How I Use It
As enhancement for K-2 students in literacy and reading. Students need a mouse but it does require Flash at this time for the games to work on the web. There are apps available for mobile devices for some of the games but there is a cost for them.
My Take
Using Starfall in the lower elementary classroom engages students with the content in the classroom and at home. It does require Flash at this time for the games to work on the web. There are apps available for mobile devices for some of the games but there is a cost for them.
