How I Use It
We watch the videos together and I will pause the videos to ask the students questions. At the end, we take a quiz or play a game if we have time. From there, we continue on to our normal IP. If we have extra time, students can choose an extra video for the class to watch as a treat. They love it!
My Take
This is a great supplement, especially for science and social studies. The videos do an excellent job of using vocabulary correctly and explaining new concepts. The games and quizzes help teachers structure questioning and pull key concepts. It doesn't have a video for everything and some of the content for K-3 is really more for kids in grades 2 and 3.
