My son and daughter enjoyed it.  It can be challenging to get students to practice some of the essential skills they need.  I think your presentation provides a unique and fun environment for the students to practice the basic facts.  This is a great way for students to monitor their own improvement as well.

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.

I am enjoying going through this. You have very clear instructions and your voice addition is very helpful for UDL. Using fun4brain was a great idea for interactivity. The only thing that confused me and it is probably because I have two screens and I wanted to follow along with your instructions. I was looking for the link to Diaper Derby from the start and then finally realized I had to go through all the instructions to get into it.
