How I Use It
I use this website only when students have completed their work. This software is really helpful for kids who are low or special needs because it focuses on remediating basic skills. It's really easy for students to sign up, is free, and takes less than 5 minutes to create a unit for your class. It can be a bit dry and limited in topics covered.
My Take
I think it's a great supplementary tool, but not something I would solely rely on as a learning unit. Great for using when students are done with a task or to focus on a specific skill. Only good for lower level grades (4-6). Needs more variety in topics.
