Study island is terrible, your palm trees can magically disappear, your scores can change drastically by themselves and you cannot contact them by phone and they do not email back. Study island is actually hard and long and with all the technical difficulties it only gets worse. I would not recommend for anyone.
Like that it is geared toward individual states CCSS and that students progress can be tracked
Study Island is not free, but it is an excellent site to use to reinforce skills and for test prep. The site offers opportunities to practice reading and math skills that are aligned to each state's official standards. It is currently being updated to reflect the recently adopted Common Core Standards. Students work through the practice sessions to earn blue ribbons and the privilege of playing Study Island games.
