Comment:

This is a great resource to use with students who need help with their addition facts.  It is short, but that is great for young students with a short attention span. The links work and the Diaper Derby is funny and competitive.  I like that the computer screens on the PowerPoint link to the websites, but it may be helpful to have the link on slide 2 instead of slide 3 and again on slide 4 instead of slide 10.  This would make it more user friendly.  Also, I noticed that there are speaker icons on the PowerPoint, although I did not hear anything except for the dog barking.  Perhaps record sound telling the learner what to do to meet the needs of auditory learners. Also, to accomodate more interests you may want to have students choose 3 different games under the addition tab or select 2 others to go along with the Diaper Derby.  This will provide students with addition practice in different contexts and some games may interest some students more than others. Overall, this is a helpful resource to use that easily assesses student progress!  Great job!

Technical Remarks:

On the PowerPoint, have the links on slide 2 instead of slide 3 and on slide 4 instead of slide 10 to make it more user friendly.
