How I Use It
I use more starfall and starfall as a whole in my classroom almost daily! I love how it has so many different layers to the website and covers so many different concepts. It is tied to common core standards which makes me happy! I use this website in the mornings for morning warm ups or bell ringers. It has subject connections to reading through a talking library, math practice and even phonemic awareness applications. I use the first grade section for adding content comprehension for my students specially for math practice. I have been using it in connection with my smart board and allow students to interact with the practice modes.
My Take
The site can work with students both in a whole group or individual learning. The great part of the website allows students to work and play games even at home to help them with the concepts they learn in the classroom. I really have no complaints except for when using it in whole group if a student takes too long to answer it will give them a hint or highlight the answer. I sometimes think it is too quick to give it away and does not allow students much time to think but overall the application and website works amazing!!
