Dream Box Math Lessons

LSC has purchased and has been using the Dream Box math app in the classrooms since last year. DreamBox is a K-8 online math program and is proven to increase math growth. DreamBox dynamically adapts to the learner, providing personalized instruction. The lessons are available in English and Spanish, and are aligned to all state standards.

It is our LSC district expectation that every child will complete 60-90 minutes of Dream Box weekly. At Edgelea, we believe children are very capable of completing this assignment. Teachers are able to monitor each child's time spent on this app, their progress, how many lessons were completed, successes and challenging areas. Teachers are able to assign specific lessons to help your child grown. We firmly believe this is one easy way for children to continue to make growth, work at their independent level, and continue to learn the Indiana State Standards. PLEASE EXPECT YOUR CHILD to COMPLETE DREAM BOX ASSIGNMENTS WEEKLY!

I would like to give a public shout out to the following students who did over 40 math lessons in one week's time:

Lucie Fennell-3rd

Carlos Garcia-3rd

Aaron Hawkins-Kindergarten

Jesus Magana Pacheco 2nd grade


LSC ha comprado y ha estado usando la aplicación matemática Dream Box en las aulas desde el año pasado. DreamBox es un programa de matemáticas en línea K-8 y se ha demostrado que aumenta el crecimiento matemático. DreamBox se adapta dinámicamente al alumno, proporcionando instrucción personalizada. Las lecciones están disponibles en inglés y español, y están alineadas con todos los estándares estatales. Es nuestra expectativa del distrito de LSC que cada niño complete 60-90 minutos de Dream Box semanalmente. En Edgelea, creemos que los niños son muy capaces de completar esta tarea. Los maestros pueden monitorear el tiempo que cada niño pasa en esta aplicación, su progreso, cuántas lecciones se completaron, éxitos y áreas desafiantes. Los maestros pueden asignar lecciones específicas para ayudar a que su hijo crezca. Creemos firmemente que esta es una manera fácil para que los niños sigan creciendo, trabajen a su nivel independiente y continúen aprendiendo los Estándares del Estado de Indiana. ¡POR FAVOR ESPERE A SU HIJO PARA COMPLETAR LAS ASIGNACIONES DE DREAM BOX SEMANALMENTE! Me gustaría dar un agradecimiento público a los siguientes estudiantes que hicieron más de 40 lecciones de matemáticas en una semana: Lucie Fennell-3rd Carlos Garcia-3rd Aaron Hawkins-Kindergarten Jesus Magana Pacheco 2do grado

OverDrive

OverDrive is a free service offered by your library or school that lets you borrow digital content (like ebooks and audiobooks) anytime, anywhere. Every OverDrive collection is slightly different because each library or school picks the digital content they want for their users.


Where to find OverDrive on your child's iPad. Students go to ClassLink App (light blue app with a cloud like design on it). ClassLink uses the child's regular LSC username and password. If you don't have, your teacher or principals can give you that information.

From Our Tech Department

Click on the link below to fix iPad that is not connecting to the internet.

Troubleshooting Kindergarten iPads

I had a parent message today and tell me that she struggled to get her kindergarten child's iPad connected to the internet. However, she went into settings and turned on VPN. This is located near the Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Blue-Tooth sections. After turning VPN on, it worked.

Another tried and true trick is to turn the iPad off and turn it back on again. This resets it and often corrects issues.

How to Turn an iPad Off

  1. Press and hold the on/off/sleep button at the top right corner of the iPad.
  2. Keep holding the button until a slider appears on the screen.
  3. Move the Slide to power off slider all the way to the right, or choose ​Cancel to keep the iPad on.
