Clip to ScrapBook #2

it is a do-able program. Ideally you want the kids to go on 3 times a week (each session is abou 10 min). I was having a difficult time finding time to get 23 kids on my 2 computers 3 times a week without missing out on some instruction/activity and keeping the kids focused and not looking at the "game" their friend is playing (probably management on my part as well). Those teachers who were able to do this did say they saw improvement in their students basic computation. I didn't like that my 5th graders had to start at addition and w/not getting on 3 times a week it's hard to master each operation program to go to the next. I really just wanted them to practice multiplication but was told they had to go through +/-.
