How I Use It
I used this product after direct instruction for further application and individual practice. I also used SumDog with my whole class in a computer lab setting during the last segment . Finally I used this product during my math center time as a technology piece which enhanced the direct instruction segment. Children of all abilities were always engaged and very excited about learning.
My Take
I felt that this product was a very useful and very engaging tool for my classroom. The students were extremely excited when they began seeing their scores and when they were playing against other students in our school.. I will continue to use this as a part of my technology piece of my lesson plans because of the enthusiasm and the learning that took place. The only problem with this product in my classroom was with the excitement the noise level is much higher .
