How I Use It
I use the site with all grade levels. My favorite part is the Animate program. My upper grades students love to create their own digital animations and now we are transitioning to writing stories and scripts to go with the animations they created. Another part I like this the English-Spanish games. They are short but we don't offer a Spanish class in our school. Students often select these games and enjoy learning Spanish vocabulary words.
My Take
I love ABCYa! I use this site in my Technology Lab quite often. My lower grade students in particular love the learning games. My kindergarten often lack mouse skills and using the educational games has greatly improved their mouse navigation abilities. The students also become familiar with navigating websites and closing the games.
