I'm In Love...

     I can't keep it to myself any longer, I'm in love!  Scootpad is amazing and I want to share it with all of you. I've been using Scootpad in my classroom for math and reading practice which is focused on the Common Core Standards. Students have both school and home access which can be used as homework practice if you choose.  In addition to math and reading practice, there are other options for customizable homework tasks that can be created, such as a reading log, a classroom page for students to chat with each other, leader boards, and rewards. 
     Scootpad is personalized to each students level which in turn keeps them engaged and challenged.  The practice is leveled to their appropriate needs as they work through each level and aligned to the Common Core Standards. There is even a Concept Bank to add other practice or your own practice assignments.  You can assign what the students work on to meet or match your classroom needs or you can just have them complete extra practice as class or homework. The reports page allows you to track student practice and customize what they are working on.
     The best part about Scootpad is that it is free with no advertisements.  As you know, this is one thing I try to focus on with websites and apps I suggest.  My students are doing a wonderful job with their practice.  It did take a little time for them to get use to the platform, but they've jumped in with both feet and are doing amazing.  I'm expanding my homework that I've assigned this week to include both spelling, a reading log, and writing.

     Check out Scootpad, and let me know what you might fall in love too!
