How I Use It
I use this site to reinforce lessons I have taught. After introducing letter sounds I encourage students to use this site to review. This site is easy enough for the youngest student to use. Students love the interactive books on the site. The site can be used on individual computers or projected through the interactive whiteboard. There are printable materials that can also be used as homework or in centers.
My Take
This is a great product as a teaching tool. The free portions are fantastic and if students have Internet at home they are wonderful to use as homework. Some of my lowest functioning special education students have learned the letters and sounds using this website. The fee for using some parts and for the iPad apps is constricting and prohibits me from using all the materials.
