How I Use It
I use this with my 2nd grade students almost everyday. It is a learning tool in the way students will research books that relate to a topic we are learning about in any core subject area and gather more information from the books they find. It is also used as a reward for the students to do on Fridays when they have completed all of there work.
My Take
I like how I can assign books to my students to read. It is a reinforcement of what is being taught and can even bring in new information for the kids. It is also a great research tool to start kids young and it does it in a safe way.
