How I Use It
I use Front Row to differentiate assignments in the classroom and in the computer lab. Assigning multiple reading levels to my students is easy. I like to pair the work that we are doing in our adopted reading text with articles on Front Row to deepen/extend our learning. My only hope is that someday my school purchases the school edition - until then, I am happy to use the free features.
My Take
I love Front Row. My students can work at their own pace and they are motivated to stay on task. They cheer when I tell them that we will be working on Front Row. Students love earning coins and competing against the other teams. They know that they have to complete any assignments before working on what they choose. While students are engaged with this program, I am free to get individualized testing done or meet with struggling students. If we aren't going to be in the lab, I love that we can use the app or I can print out individualized math practice. I would recommend this program to anyone looking for a way to engage their students productively and quickly/easily differentiate to meet all of their needs.
