How I Use It
This is the basis for my at-home summer work with my own children. I also use this as hooks in class for opening units, bell ringers, and brain-breaks.
I really like BrainPOP as a teacher and a parent. My kids (children and students) find it engaging and interesting. They often use the Video of the Day to jump to new topics or to find new interests to pursue. As a hook, it catches both my visual and auditory students; as a brain break, they often lead to quick Socratic discussions.
