Teacher Review for Freckle

Great way to use standards based assessments and targeted interventions in math, and ELA. Social Studies and Science units provide engaging activities and leveled nonfiction articles.

How I Use It
I use Front Row for math intervention and practice. The math assessments let me see which standards a student needs help with within minutes of them finishing the assessments. This allows me to target my teaching in small group intervention and to assign targeted practice to students.
My Take
Front Row is a powerful product. If you have the school edition you will be able to track growth, assign unlimited grade level ELA articles, and have full access to all activities and articles in the Social Studies and Science. If you just have a free account you will have to make do and there will be some gaps in how you can apply the program and what you can assign or teach. I only have the free edition, but it has been a valuable tool, especially with regards to mathematics. The adaptive practice meets the needs of advanced learners, grade level learners, and students in need of intervention.
