I wanted my students to have fun, stay engaged, and practice their math skills independently. I also wanted to receive feedback about their progress so I could adapt my instruction accordingly. My students used other online math games before, but quickly became bored. Now, they love Prodigy Game so much, they want to play all the time, and even beg to stay in for recess to play.

Product Use: I introduced Prodigy Game and asked my students to explore it during small group time. After they became familiar with how the game worked and its functions, I began to offer it as an independent math station during our daily math rotations. It didn't take long for my students to become immersed in Prodigy Game!

What Worked and What Didn't: I can't think of anything that didn't work, other than the fact that my students wanted to play ALL the time, and of course we have other subjects in school to learn. I love that Prodigy Game gives immediate feedback to my students and it is so engaging. My students need very little to no help understanding how Prodigy works, so they can work independently while I hold small group instruction with other students.

Age Group: Elementary school students
