How I Use It
During our study of bats, my students were able to access two differently leveled non-fiction books about bats. I chose whether they needed to read the material themselves or whether they could listen to it. Afterwards they took a comprehension test.
My Take
I appreciate that my school paid for this website for all my students. It takes a while to set up the class. The teacher must input all the student names and then make the usernames and passwords easy for children to remember and type. After that, the teacher must assign a group of levels to each student.
