How I Use It
I primarily use this site with 1st - 3rd grade students. It is great for mini-lessons (i.e. Typing Rocket, Jr. for keyboard recognition) and focused review of something being taught in the classroom. My students will typically use this as a "May Do" in my lab after we completed our assigned work. Time must be monitored due to the fact that there are such a variety of activities that students easily lose track of time.
My Take
The amount of activities available in ABCya makes it easy for my students to access and be actively engaged during our class time. Advanced students can get bored pretty easy, but the majority of my students love this site.
