How I Use It
I have used the website with my projector to share the fractions during the direct instruction of math lessons. I have also used the games full class by calling on students to solve. I have also used the website for extra practice for my ELL and struggling students as well. It works better if I use the website with myself or an aide help the student navigate the site and help them better their understanding.
My Take
As the review states, the website is rather dated and simple. The graphics are not flashy and could be more interactive. However it is a good start. I appreciate they have linked to Common Core standards. My students liked it a first, but quickly lost interest. I found it is best to use as a quick visual aide during instruction.
