Dreambox Clarification

Clarifying the student use of paper and pencil while working in Dreambox

Dreambox is a program that is designed to help students perform math skills efficiently. While students work through their learning pathway they are welcome to use paper and pencil as a support while they are building those skills to become more efficient. They are on a journey of learning the strategies that will support the acquisition of those skills and scaffolds may be needed while they are on their personalized journey. If a student is using paper and pencil we ask that they do not use the pause button while they work their problems out on the paper. The program is constantly running metrics on each student while they work and it is important for the program to be aware that the student needs time to figure out the answer and that is okay. Please note that it may delay progress as the program creates a learning path that will provide the opportunities for the student to have more experiences with tools and strategies that will build those skills.

PurposeFULL People

We now have access to our new SEL(social emotional learning) toolkit called PurposeFULL people. It is a wealth of wonderful ideas to use in teaching SEL and character in your classroom. Spend some time digging in it and looking at all that is available to use. We will talk more about how to implement soon.

Character Shout-Outs

We have placed some Character Shout-outs in your boxes. We are also attaching them in the S'more. These are for the adults to give to students who have shown really good character and need to be recognized for it. It doesn't have to be for the core value of the month. It can be for any core values. The student can turn them into the buckets in the library.
