How I Use It
I have used this site to provide visual and interactive learning or my special needs students. However, it has also been utilized in the general education classroom, as it provides just the right components for differentiation at many levels. I will continue to incorporate its resources within my lessons as it serves as a valuable learning tool for all my students with resource, inclusion, and general settings.
My Take
Just like the Jr. version, this site is great for introducing, reinforcing, and enhancing instruction on a wealth of topics. All content areas are covered here, so it serves as a "bread and butter" resource to be included in all elementary level lessons.
