How I Use It
I use BrainPOP Jr. all the time! I use it to intro lessons, to extend a lesson and to assess students. It is easy to use and has many additional extensions that can be used whole class, individually, small group or in partners. My students love the games that extend each video and I love the quizzes that allow me to assess what my students know. I also use the videos as part of a blended learning program by assigning the videos for homework and digging deeper into the topic the next day at school.
My Take
I truly love this product and the variety of ways in which it supports my teaching. It allows my students to understand difficult concepts because the topics are explained in a way that is kid friendly and fun. The videos are entertaining and informative. Lesson plans are available to help implement BrainPOP Jr. in the classroom.
