How I Use It
Our grade level assigned DreamBox lessons as math homework. It worked well to allow students to catch up on assigned lessons over the weekend. I created a DreamBox leader board and the competition was fierce as students completed lessons and mastered standards to get their name on this list.
It takes some getting used to when kids first start using it. They can get frustrated with the format and want to give up. I saw my students develop perseverance, which is one of the math practices. It is supposed to adapt for struggling students, but I didn't dive deep enough into it to see how that worked.
