How I Use It
I have been trying in on Fridays only with my 6th graders. They love it. They are often competitive when I leave the tracker on the Smartboard. We occasionally have issues with games locking or that is the way students perceive what is happening.
My Take
Some of the "learning" level activities need more explanation-especially if being used with special needs/een students. I have found that they get frustrated easily and will give up if the first level is too challenging. I would also like to see more variety in the activities at the Mastery level. I can usually fit three activities into 30 minutes, which is all I let my students have at one sitting, and I know they would like a larger variety once they have made it to free play.
