Lalilo is an app that focuses on essential literacy skills like sight words, word families and letter-sound recognition. Students click through adaptive lessons while the teacher uses a dashboard to monitor whole-class and individual student progress on a range of literacy skills. There's great coverage of every letter sound and word family, and students also get practice reading stories. Students journey through different worlds and meet cartoon characters and along the way, they complete activities, read books, and progress on a well-structured learning path.
