How I Use It
I use Starfall in my classroom on a daily basis. I use it as a whole group lesson, small group lesson, or for individual needs. Starfall has a lot of great resources for teaching reading. In my classroom I have put students on certain letters that they struggle with to give them extra support. Other times I have used it as a whole class review on different letters. Sometimes it is just a great website to have students explore on their own to review anything reading skill that they want too. The students love going on Starfall! They are engaged with their learning when they are on it.
My Take
This tool is an excellent tool. They have really though out how to teach these concepts to the students. There is a mini lesson, a book that they can read, and than a song or activity afterward. If you are looking for a great online resource to use in your classroom I would start with this site.
