DreamBox Learning

Online Mathematics Learning Program for Grades K-5

What is DreamBox?

Our district has received access to DreamBox Learning, a K-8 digital math program, at no cost for the duration of the at-home learning period this spring. We appreciate the support of the DreamBox team and value this tool to support student learning of mathematics as a supplement to daily math lessons.

How does my child access the program?

Families received an email with information on classroom and student codes to access DreamBox Learning in early April.

If you did not receive this email or have a question about getting student log-in access, please email West Hartford Public Schools IT Helpdesk@whps.org or 860-561-6636. Please note that Dreambox does not have student password information for security reasons. After April vacation, your teacher will have training for accessing student password information.

How does the program work? Why does my child need to work independently?

DreamBox adjusts lessons to your child's individual learning and progress. If children complete lessons with support from parents/learning guardians or siblings, they will likely feel frustrated when working independently in later lessons. If not working independently, lessons will become too difficult, and children may lose motivation (or give up) on this program intended to adapt to their individual learning needs.
