Great gaming style learning site for kids, parents and teachers!
Community Review for PBS Kids
This site is great for individual work. It may be too advanced for younger students (k-1st) especially if they are struggling readers. I really love that the site has an area for parents and teachers to education themselves as well. There are endless videos full of educationally appropriate information. It is an exciting website for students.
How I Use It
This product would be excellent to use on our mobile laptop cart for independent work, but also lends itself well to smart board, whole class lessons. What worked was that the kids enjoyed the format of the site. They got to create an avatar that would be used for the learning games and videos. It is set up very much like a gaming system, which is something that kids can relate to.
