How I Use It
I use Prodigy for many things! It is super easy to differentiate what students are working on, and the kids LOVE being able to play! I have used it for homework, independent work, group work, and even as a whole group lesson from time to time! There is always maximum student engagement when Prodigy is involved!
My Take
I love using Prodigy! The kids are always excited to play which gives them many more positive experiences with math than some kids who struggle might normally have. It is so easy to align it with what I am teaching or use as an assessment tool after a unit. Prodigy has also given me more ways to "gameify" math in my classroom when I use it for a whole group instruction tool!
