How I Use It
I use this site with primary students regularly including Keyboarding Zoo with Kindergarteners. Its a great intro to the keyboard that helps with letter recognition and finding the keys. I look forward to using the new feature of the site called animate to get students creating gifs. There are also a lot of great games that practice math skills around themes (holidays, special events etc.)
My Take
Easy to navigate and use, a great site to have students working independently to practice skills or create products. Would make a great addition to classroom centers. Amount of time indicated above is for primary students. I strongly believe upper elementary students would fall under the less than 5 minutes category.
