How I Use It
We used it for study and reading skills.
My Take
My students like the boldy-colored graphics and silliness of the characters. There's a lot of information on some pages, so not all activities are suited for ELLs, which is who I work with. I only wish there were more things on the site that were free...or that we had the money to buy the program for my district!
