Our 2018~2019 school year is off and running! It has been an exciting and busy start to the year as we have begun to implement Dreambox Learning. In Dreambox students will actively engage in learning with interactive manipulatives that connect students to math learning in ways that paper and pencil never could. In DreamBox students explore, reason, make connections and develop critical thinking and problem solving strategies. Dreambox is available for students to use outside of school hours as well as during their school day. Students should work independently on each task/assignment as Dreambox is constantly collecting data on how your child learns and adapts to meet them where they are.
It has been exciting to visit with students in many grade levels and watch their Mathematical Mindsets grow and change! If you are looking for a resource that will help you support your child's mathematical learning check out youcubed.org created by Jo Boaler and the "youcubians" from Stanford University. It has some great articles, videos, links to apps and other resources to help you help you and your child enjoy exploring math together!
