How I Use It
I like to use ABCya to review skills that the classroom teachers have been teaching. I also use it for practice in using a mouse, clicking and dragging, and navigating the internet. I wish there were more "fun" options in the Letters and Numbers selection for each grade level. My students often skip those activities and go down to the Just For Fun section unless I have them spend a specific amount of time on them.
My students really enjoy having ABCya as a choice when they are able to chose in the computer lab. They like the games, and sometimes don't even realize they are learning! I don't like that the adds are too close to some of the games, so younger children may accidentally click on them, directing them to another page. One thing I really like about the site is that they are constantly updating them games and adding new ones for the kids to try!
