How I Use It
My students get so excited when they see the videos on my screen. I use to start a lesson and build background knowledge so we have a starting point- this is especially helpful for lower level students who just need a jump start. There are always vocabulary word for each lesson that almost always match exactly our curriculum. I am going to start using their "game up" section for my lab students to extend lessons.
My Take
Brainpop Jr. has lessons for all subject areas. I have taught as a grade level teacher and now as a technology lab teacher, and I can always find a video, lesson or ideas to help make my own. I wish there were more lessons, but I am sure they are adding as quickly as they can.
