How I Use It
My students used this activity during math groups. The teacher has to set up a profile for each student. When the students log on they take a test to place them where they fit best. They then earn points/coins to make changes to their character. They are also able to compete with classmates. This was a favorite in my classroom.
My Take
I love sumdog. My kids enjoy learning while using it. It is good for all learning styles. It will place the students where they tested out. It helps them work on basic skills while playing games. They love playing the games and competing with each other. One thing I would advise is to close the store. My students spent a lot of time buying stuff for their character.
