Teachers like you love that Prodigy now supports Clever

Here's what they're saying:

It is rare to find an educational game that is so well loved by SO many students. The best part is it is FREE. Prodigy meets students at their level and helps to enrich and extend what they already know. Students are not aware of the content being reviewed with the other players so the students can work without worrying about being self conscious. Teachers have the ability to assign and assess students on standards, tests, and their own teacher created assignments. Students love the ability to customize their characters, house, and love owning pets. Parents love being able to sign up and receiving reports on the progress their child is making. The game is a WIN for all.
Kids and teachers love this FREE math program. On the teacher end, it lets you personalize practice and assign it to students as a group or individually. It provides lot of reports on their progress, usage, and mastery of standards. For kids, they can battle each other, collect coins and pets, change outfits, discover many different worlds and participate in challenges. Easy to sign up and navigate. My kids love being able to practice skills in a game format. We have seen good growth. They are always sad when their time is up, so I always remind them they can play at home, too, and they actually do, so that says something. All around, a wonderful program!
Prodigy is a great tool to engage students while at the same time they practice math skills. I love to use it early in the morning while we wait for everyone to have breakfast or right after covering a particular topic for them to practice. They also love it as a reward activity. It provides reports and you are able to assign particular activities and monitor progress. It is just great!
Where to start? Prodigy is an incredible FREE curriculum-aligned math application that will change your classroom in amazing ways. My students love Prodigy and beg to play it every day. They get so excited when it is a choice during learning that day. The results to my math grades and their understanding has been phenomenal. To them it is just a game. However they are learn more than they ever knew and practice skills they need to work on. I love it as a teacher because I can assign standards to them and let them play. I don't have to worry about if we are wasting time or if we are off task. They are always on task and loving learning while they are playing.. We use at home too for homework or extra practice. As a parent I have seen how great this works too with my own kids.
