How I Use It
I have used this product as a home learning tool. I have 2 learners using the program, one who started with minimal letter and word recognition and one confident reader.
My Take
This is a great tool, particularly for young learners. My youngest learner loves using the program and is flying through the levels. I am seeing a huge improvement in the way he responds to the lessons on screen and verbalises the responses as he moves through the levels. The underlying egg earning encourages him to complete more levels. My older learner is fixated on the egg earning and has come up with ways to work around this as eggs are harder to achieve at the higher levels it has forced her to looks for ways to attain access to games and furnishings without putting in the level of work the game requires. I think the game may need to do some work in the area as it is discouraging for older players since the items they want are expensive compared to their earning capability when compared to the younger childrens version. (common sense review seems out of date).
