Teacher Review for eSpark

An engaging online site that allows students to master math and reading while watching videos, working out problems, and reading short articles. The students don't realize they are learning, because the site makes the experience fun!

How I Use It
What is great about eSpark is that students do the work and want to do the work. The site allows small groups to be formed to work on needed remediation. The website sends emails recommending remediation, small groups, and items students need to improve upon. It is a wonderful tool that allows me as the teacher to check my students progress in math and reading in less than 5 minutes.
My Take
eSpark is a tool I would recommend to all ages. I like that the students can login with their google classroom or clever accounts and get right to work. I like that they decide what avatar to use for the day's work. I like that they can work on reading and math in an engaging manner. It shows the students short Disney videos. It allows them to visit websites to read short essays.
