Read my review of the product and then enter for your chance to win 1 of 5 free Learning Spot Lessons from Carson-Dellosa!
Right before school ended, I was contacted by Carson-Dellosa to review their newest interactive product: Learning Spot Lessons. These lessons can be viewed on a whiteboard, a PC, or any other item that you may want to use.
I was able to use the lessons during the last few weeks of school and have already been integrating them into my lessons for the upcoming school year. The 2 lessons I used the most during this time were: Map Skills 1 and Wants and Needs, and Phonemic Awareness as it was easier for me to focus on Social Studies at the end of the year after the SAT-10 and review Phonemic Awareness skills with no pressure.
While using the Map Skills 1 students were able to come to the Promethean Board to work on a map and click to listen to descriptions and directions. You have the ability to set the difficulty level, the language, and what lessons you want the student(s) to work on. Once in the student activities section, students can play a game that includes matching, moving parts, etc. to continue with the learning process. There are also practice pages to print, which you can use as a hard copy for grading or portfolio work. If you ever need a full overview, each lesson has a teacher notes section explaining everything that is included in the lessons. I was able to differentiate according to student need.
You can use the interface without a Smart Board or Promethean Board, as there is a pen and eraser function included. There is also a button for standard correlations, so aligning the lessons to Common Core or other standards is at the ready.
Here is a short video highlighting the features:
