I used this program in an inclusion setting and in a pull out classroom. In the inclusion setting we used Woot 2-3 times a week for 20-30 min sessions. While some kids worked on this site others would be pulled for small group work with the teacher. I used incentives for completing a book and getting all the stars possible. Kids were motivated to accomplish this. In my resource class of 7 we did a lot of work together as a whole group. Features of the program let you pull from a large bank of questions and project them to a smartboard to work together.
This is a wonderful tool for differentiation in the classroom! I love the concrete manipulative aspect of the site. Kids love the program and enjoy learning through this site, The staff at Woot Math are always ready to help adapt the program through teacher suggestions. They have been wonderful to work with.
I took the data from the usage reports of all the kids at Battlefield Elementary and measured those kids who had completed 40 lessons in Woot Math with those who had not. I looked at the STAR Math scores for 4 classroom that are inclusion classrooms. Students who had done more than 40 lessons scored in the 79th percentile and students who had not scored in the 60th percentile. I was happy with that and it made me feel good about using the product.
