How I Use It
I enjoy using Brainpop Jr Movie of the Week as a Hook. I also use it as a center. Students write or share three facts they learned with their group. If they are responsible for learning facts about the movie, they are more apt to write notes or pay attention. They love the characters and cannot wait to see what Moby will do next.
My Take
I really enjoy Brainpop activities and movies. I know my students are learning in a safe environment and the content is age appropriate for the classroom.
