How I Use It
I have used this product both as an individualized enhancement activity in the classroom and in Aftercare School activities with Grades 3-8.
My Take
This is a terrific program that can be used by an individual student or with a group of students. The various subjects that are available can be used for review (multiplication facts, basic language reviews, identify countries) and for exploration of new information (learning a new language, famous paintings). My students have used it for both review and personal exploration, especially in regards to language. They have enjoyed filling up their bowls with rice to help others while having fun. It is engaging, individualized and motivating even when you get the wrong answer.
