How I Use It
I love the Spell a Picture feature to practice spelling words for kindergarten and first graders. I have created student accounts in Kerpoof so that they log in and accumulate coins (which is great motivation for them) and I have also had students visit the site as a guest. Either way, it is a great place for creation. My students especially love the Make a Movie - which is a perfect activity for Halloween!
My Take
My students love creating with Kerpoof. It does not have many applications for the core subjects (except for spell a picture) but it is a great tool to allow students to express themselves creatively.
