How I Use It
I use it for the learning of multiplication facts for my fifth graders. By fifth grade, all students need to have them memorized for automaticity and math self-esteem. Free Rice fits the bill just fine. In my classroom, the competition is still going...
My Take
Free Rice is a great tool for memorization drills such as math facts. At the same time, it helps students become socially aware and active to world hunger. Fifth graders love it and get in competition with each other to gain the most rice. It would be nice for it to have feedback for when students get answers wrong.
