How I Use It
This product is used during student choice time such as inside recess. Students love the website because it is action packed with many things moving around and it is super colorful. However, I find it to be very distracting and lacking a many concepts.
My Take
I would not use this product as a teaching tool because I do not feel that the content is developed enough. I like that the colors are bright and inviting for students. I think that this could be used more effectively if more examples were given and if concepts were taught in a variety of ways.
