This is another site that was passed along to me as a viable technology tool that enhances Dan Pink’s aptitude of “play”.
It looks like the site has different grade-appropriate levels, starting with the alphabet and moving on to rudimentary reading.
One of the interesting statements on the site is that even though it is meant to teach young children to read using phonics, it also is effective in helping older students who may speak English as a second language.
I think that older high school students who are just learning English face daily frustration with mastering a second language. If you can get them past the elementary style of the interface, they might enjoy some low-key fun with reading.
So give it a try, and let me know what you think!Share
