Does anyone else use this online program in their classroom? My school just started with it and so far it's been fabulous!

I did a trial period and loved it! It's quite expensive though. I'm hoping the PTA will pay for my subscription for next year.

What age group are the activities for? Would it be appropriate for kindergarten?

I did the free trial with 4th graders last year. I like it, but it's too expensive for me to continue.

There may be enough grade levels using it at my site to convince admin to get the site license for next year.

I love it! It has been really helpful with a new grade this year. I know the school isn't going to pay for it next year though. It is such a great resource. I wish it was cheap enough for me to pay for it myself.

This is my second year using the program. Last year I had the free trial and this year K-5 have subscriptions. My 3rd graders love the units. They are so engaged and are truly disappointed on an alternate day when I don't teach science. This program is incredibly teacher / planning friendly. Each lesson or mystery comes with a great teaching video. It's on the lean side when it comes to assessments; however, I don't mind because IMO everything else about it outweighs that shortfall. The company is open to feedback and are frequently updating /making adjustments based on your reviews. Overall, I highly recommend this program!!

Yes! I got a grant to purchase it for this year. I LOVE it...the kids love it. It's engaging and covers a lot of the standards.

Here's a tip...if you wait until January to purchase the price drops to $99 for a classroom. Still expensive, but it might be in your budget...
