How I Use It
I often used the videos on this site as a part of an Opener/ Bell Ringer to review or troubleshoot parts of speech on a writing-intensive day in my class. The students enjoyed the videos/ songs and were able to further apply that knowledge to whatever extension activity I provided. (These videos would not be effective if used in isolation with a recall activity at the high school level.)
My Take
This is a good review tool for a general and co-taught ninth grade ELA class. It changed the pace of the class and provided a different type of 'text' for the students to use. This site has interactive quizzes that could be very useful for a stations activity in fourth and fifth grade. Due to the very 'elementary' look and entertainment value of the sources, I would not rely on this for direct instruction in secondary learning environments.
