Teacher Review for eSpark

SUPER EASY for busy teachers! Individualized lessons for each student. It's amazing because sometimes we don't have time to dog into the reports, so they email you with small group suggestions and a lesson to remediate included.

How I Use It
We spend several days per week on eSpark for about a half hour. Everyone does it at the same time, but I know this would work really well as a center during literacy rotations.
My Take
I love that it is easy for a busy teacher, but also individualized for students. The students get the instruction they need without teachers having to go in and assign lessons one by one. I love that they send emails to me to let me know who is doing great! My kids loved the high fives! And they also send emails to tell me who is struggling, and what they are struggling with. Then they also include in that email a lesson to run with that small group to practice the skill they are lacking. It's been a great addition to our schedule!
