Tech Tool Spotlight
Ok, Zeal is technically a paid-for service, BUT you can sign up for a free trial through the end of the year to see if you and your students like it! The program has a lot of potential and is worth looking into. Students to be working with a tutor while you are pulling small groups! Ms. Keith has been using it with her fourth graders so they can have one-on-one coaching while working through Math problems. Feel free to contact her if you have any specific questions.
If you would like to check it out as a teacher, here is the class code: 78bdd8
Once you log in with the code, feel free to click on any of the demo student names.
