Dreambox Lunch at St. Charles Elementary School


April 1, 2011 - This year, two classes at St. Charles Elementary School have been working on building their math skills using Dreambox, an online math tool that they can access both at school and at home. This project, funded through the North Easter Ontario Education Network (NEOEN), has provided home and school access to students in these classes, as well as time for collaborative planning and learning for the teachers. On Friday, April 1st, Mrs. Bardswich’s Grade 1/ 2 and Mrs. Harris’ Grade 2/3 classes shared their Dreambox learning with their parents. Parents were invited to the classroom to visit and participate in math learning centres with their children, followed by a pizza lunch. The students shared their experiences, and talked about how they felt that Dreambox was improving their math ability. The enthusiasm and confidence displayed by all of the students was wonderful to see. This lunch was a perfect opportunity for teachers and parents to share their observations about student learning and confidence, and for students to share their perceptions of their math ability and the value of using this tool for math learning. Our thanks go out to all of the parents who participated in this event, and to the staff of St. Charles Elementary School, particularly Mrs. Bardswich and Mrs. Harris, for making this event possible.
