How I Use It
Primarily, I have used this product for vocabulary gain. Recently, however, I have been using FreeRice.com for math skills review with my A/A. Students practice independently leading up to using FreeRice on the SmartBoard at the front of my room in a competition.
Using this particular site for review work also leads into learning conversations about world hunger and NGOs.
I think this is a great tool for simple review and for building basic skills in struggling students. The real hook, for me, is the chance to talk to students about world hunger and NGOs, using this as a springboard to research projects or other A/A style discussion.
