How I Use It
I provide a link to the website on my class website and allow students to explore it during either small groups or computer lab times. What works is that the kids LOVE the site. What I don't enjoy is that some of the games have little educational value. What I do is either find games ahead of time that I want the kids to use for practice or tell them they must be able to explain the educational value of a game they choose.
My Take
I love this site for keeping kids' interest and it provides a big selection of choices for math practice. I don't like that many of the games provide little educational value, but with some planning ahead it's a great tool!
