How I Use It
I can see myself using this website as a reinforcement tool or introduction to a lesson. It is easy to relate learning materials to the content and characters that young students see on tv. The students can navigate the site themselves. The colorful and interactive aspect engages students while they learn. I think to the point that the children don't recognize this is an educational site. Flash and other downloads are necessary for the games to work, so if your school doesn't already have that downloaded, it could take a lot of time.
My Take
This is a great supplement to teaching . It is so easy to navigate and I won't have to worry about viruses or other online dangers for my kiddos. The games talk and explain how to play and come with a storyline. It is so relatable and I recommend it to all pre-k and k classrooms.
