How I Use It
I use it frequently on the whiteboard with my class or in small groups. Since most of the games and activities are iPad friendly, this is one of the few sites I can use in our iPad labs where kids can play kids and be left to navigate on their own. Kids are totally engaged (more like engrossed) and are always disappointed when computer lab or ipad lab time is over.
My Take
MrNussbaum.com has a game or resource for every kind of learner for every age. In my opinion, it is the best free educational resource for elementary teachers and students. While the site features over 100 engaging games, the vast majority of the site features interactive research modules, maps, and leveled literacy activities such as Reading Comprehension Modules (including those that focus of main idea, contextual vocabulary etc.), math workshops (such as Envision Division, Age of the Angles, and Sushi Fractions among others) and other apps where kids can make their own content such as maps, stories, and more. It also is organized by subject, grade level, or by standards and offers teachers thousands of printable or online activities for free. Most activities are iPad friendly ---- no downloads or purchasing apps (although there are apps for sale) Our favorite activities are Collage America, Envision Division, Drag n Drop Math and Cash Out to name just a few.
