General
How I Use It
We use this as a supplemental aid to help students practice skills independently. Students work on this when they are not in a small guided group with a teacher. Overall it works great! However, some of the skills go beyond the standard or force the children to complete a skill one way/multiple ways in stead of the way the student prefers to learn. This becomes challenging for independent struggling students who need repeated practice of their preferred solving strategy.
My Take
Overall I really like this tool, because it allows most students to practice independent skills. I think it could be better if teachers were able to opt students out of certain lessons that don’t fit the standard or the learner.
