Ratings and Reviews
Great for students
I would have gave it a 5, But freeplay mode is a bit buggy. And does not give you unlimited movements. But overall it is great for kids! But please add a grade selection. For grades pre k through kinder a voice should read the instructions. 1 through 6
Or higher should have levels to complete that get (harder)
I like it
The app is really fun in all but the levels are really easy and maybe some more things daisy could do and I keep getting bugs
This app really does teach the basics of computer programming, which is really cool, and it is simple enough for very young kids, BUT...kids have to be able to read well to learn to play it. It would be nice if the app had an option to read the instructions to you, so younger kids could learn it independently. The character, Daisy Dinosaur, seems to be for very young kids, and the instructions are certainly simple enough for them, if only they didn't have to deal with the frustration of using early reading skills to stumble over the words. I think Daisy is a bit too cutesy for older kids, but they would feel more confident in reading the instructions. If parents don't mind reading the instructions though, the commands are easy to read for beginning readers, and kids as young as 5 or 6 could play it once they learn how.
