How I Use It
I use brainpop jr. to introduce a lesson at least once a week. I feel this is a very helpful tool to show a fun way of introducing a topic. Students get very excited when they hear the music to see what their new topic of learning is going to be. Moby the robot is character entertaining and always makes the students laugh. I use brainpop jr. for whole group lessons.
My Take
Brainpop jr is a fast, fun and very educational. It has topics on many different subjects. It gives the students a change of pace to be able to watch a short clip on the Smart Board. This can be used to introduce a topic or summarized a topic. It is also great because the site is easy to manipulate and I can pull up what I need quickly; we all know time is not on our side!
