ALEX to Dreambox in Upper Grades

The district sent out in December that our upper grades can now use Dreambox in place of Alex. There are training offered on Munis to attend for Dreambox or you may check out some training through Canvas. Also in Canvas, your students can login directly to Dreambox.


Ms. Deese has already started with classes using Dreambox. Feel free to check out what it has to offer! Let me know what you find you and your students like better than Alex and what you wish was different.


At this time, we have not been told, "No Alex." but we are going to begin tracking Dreambox usage the way we track Lexia minutes and Bowerman rocks the Lexia minutes, so keep it up!
