How I Use It
I use this site to teach basic computer use as well as reinforce letter and number recognition. The students love having a choice to select their favorite character. The students think of it as play time they don't even know they are learning.
My Take
This site really keeps young students engaged. The characters are familiar to them and they love having choice of characters to play.
