How I Use It
We use ABCya! to strengthen math and reading skills, for typing practice and as a word cloud creator. Students also choose it when they have free choice. The games are well done, and the younger students really enjoy them.
My Take
ABCya! is a workhorse of educational games for students in K-5. Arranged by grade level and subject it is a frequently used site in my lab, when students need to practice math concepts or phonics. The games are fun for students, and usually progress by levels. In addition to math and reading, there are seasonal games (snowflakes, pumpkin carving) that are fun free-choice or after school activities. My only complaint of this site targeted to children is the ads.
