Teacher Review for Prodigy

My students love Prodigy! We play every day. Reports are invaluable for the teacher to know where their students are and what they need help with.

How I Use It
I use Prodigy for review, RTI, and my GT students. I can assign lessons based on my students ability levels. I had a problem with students not trying and putting garbage answers just so they can battle their friends. I solved the problem by telling the students that they have to come see me if they miss two problems in a roll. This is great because I can do intervention right away and not have to wait for a test. It's also been good for my advanced students because when they complete the assignment the computer automatically assigns them new problems. A lot of times the problems are skills that we haven't gotten to yet, so I can help them with these problems one on one.
My Take
I love this website. My students are excited about doing math and there is no way that I would be able to give them the practice that they get from Prodigy. Since November my students have done between 900 and 4000 problems. The students do tend to get a little noisy talking about the game. I highly recommend this site. It is a great way to use technology in the classroom. Students love computer games and this is a great way to incorporate games with learning.
