How I Use It
I use BrainPOP and BrainPOP Jr. to enhance my lessons and provide visual content to my students. There are a lot of videos that are perfect for use in any classroom as well as the library where I use it (to showcase authors, reading strategies, and my favorite- about libraries). This can be used at home for extra practice and review (students watch the video and take a quiz to refresh their memory), or even for student's independent research and learning purposes.
BrainPOP along with its counterparts, BrainPOP Jr. and BrainPOP Espanol are great ways to engages students in the lesson. The videos can be used to introduce content, review content and expand on content. There are quizzes, vocabulary words, and even graphic organizers that go with the content. it can be used on and interactive whiteboard for further engagement. There are teacher resources and lesson ideas as well.
