How I Use It
I have used ABCya! with Kindergarten-4th Grade students in a computer lab setting. We work through all the activities during the school year. I use the Keyboarding activities to introduce keyboarding skills to Kindergarten students. Other activities are used to reinforce skills learned in the classroom. Students enjoy the activities and gain confidence in skills through the reinforcement.
My Take
Students love this site! There are so many different activities to choose from. Games are categorized by grade level and also by subject. The activities on the site can be used to introduce a concept or reinforce a concept already taught. They are colorful and student-friendly. I do wish that the site did not have the pop-up ads.
