How I Use It
I signed up for the free trial. However if I had a subscription to this, I would use it as a free time filler activity. Or in centers.
My Take
The graphics are nice and the activities really seem to adapt to the student based on how well they are answering questions. I also liked the little "Too Hard?" button on the side. However, the website ran a little slowly for me and I found the organization of the games a little confusing (I got a little lost in the maps and wasn't sure exactly where I was). I liked the Parent Dashboard - particularly the detailed Curriculum Progress. I wish that there is a way to select specific skills to be emphasized. It looks like the website does this for you based on the grade level selected. However a manual option would be nice.I am disappointed that this site cannot be used on an iPad because it has flash. ** Update- the company contacted me after reading this field note and let me know that the iPad availability should be out this Fall!! **
