Good but could be better with unlimited user accounts
I really like this app for my kindergarten class; however I really wish that I could set an unlimited number of user accounts (one for each of my students)...right now only having three accounts makes it very difficult to monitor progress of all students during my computer/iPad rotation of Daily Five. Right now I have to reset accounts so that my whole class can play.
The only problem is that phonics puzzles can be solved too easily by random chance ; new reader can answer before question is given.
This is not a level one reading app.
It assumes that your child knows basics, such as letters and letter sounds. Disappointed.
