How I Use It
I use this tool as an extension to what I am teaching. I set the lesson that the student will work on when they go in and the duration. Students are able to practice and enhance their new math skills. Prodigy was very helpful when it came time for STAAR review. I simply put the STAAR review as the lesson and the students were able to work in an interactive environment that made reviewing for the test more fun.
I love Prodigy. My students were excited when we started and ask every day if they can get on when they finish their work. They really like to battle each other on the math skills! I think it is an excellent product that I will use with my future classes as well. It serves my students needs by providing manipulatives, a calculator at times. the application to work out their problems on the screen, and gives students an explanation and another chance when they get a problem wrong. It is a very helpful, interactive, fun tool!
