Teacher Review for eSpark

Love eSpark. The students enjoy it. It's easy to access. It teaches the standards. It teaches math and reading. I would wholeheartedly recommend this site/app.

How I Use It
I used it through https://www.clever.com/in/clark within my distance learning classroom. I do not require it; I use it as a choice app. Students choose it. I have no problem getting them to try it. I have also assigned lessons within the site.
My Take
I love the site/app. I question whether it will be available in Clark County the next school year, All too often sites are available, then not the next year, due to cost and District mandates. My District currently does not have eSpark as a District site. I would like that to change next year. I have my students use it, but have seen many popular sites die out due to budgetary concerns (the old Ticket to Read and Moby Max are two). Hoping eSpark is available to the students in CCSD next year. I also love the songs and games provided, and have included them within my class Google Classroom. Kindly, Alex
