How I Use It
Since many of our testing programs were cut, I used Espark baseline testing to see where my students were at academically. Since they loved the program they were very engaged and did their best. I also like that this program is so easy for them to navigate through. The books are all up to date and there are even chapter books for them to read! What is even cooler is they are organized in series Ex- Geromino Stilton series! Not only does this program monitor your reading level, it also has a wonderful math program also! After the students are done with their morning check in they are assigned to go on their epark and practice reading and doing math. I greatly appreciate that it asks them how they are feeling. I ask them on my check in , so if they are truly struggling with their day they will repeat it again. I would highly recomment E-spark.
My Take
I think that E-spark is a wonderful learning tool for reading and math practice. The students are excited to do the exercises.They have activities for all learning levels. I use it for beginning of the year baseline assessment to see where they are in Math and reading. Then I use it for intervention skills. I love how it monitors their reading and give up to date scores on their progress .
