DreamBox really helps me learn where students are having trouble. I can play with them or watch them play and have them articulate how they got to an answer. For example: how they filled up the tens frame (made nine by putting 5 then 4 more, or put the counters on one by one). This way I know what they are ready for. A student who puts 5 and then 4 more to make 9 is developmentally more ready for addition and subtraction than a student who puts counters on 1 by 1 to get to a desired number. A lot of times I do this by asking them to show me how to play or help me teach other students how to play (ex: on my smart board). Also, students who are able to articulate clearly how they got to an answer are clearly ready for a higher level of cognition and more rigor than students who cannot effectively explain how they reached answers.

DreamBox is great! The kids love it and it is PERFECT for our population of low income, high poverty students. It teaches them computer skills in addition to perfectly aligning to our math content (CCSS) and filling in those gaps. We love it!

I have seen tons of progress in their math facts, in their reasoning and problem solving skills. DreamBox has made a difference in my students’ performance and problem solving skills.

Astrid Kemper, Second Grade Teacher
Lewis Elementary School

What I love is that DreamBox takes every child where they are at and enables them to problem solve in their own ways.

I teach an intervention class of students on the autism spectrum who look forward to playing DreamBox every day. As visual learners, being able to physically move the virtual manipulatives around on the screen has allowed them to see and really understand math concepts in a whole new way. After just 6 months using DreamBox last year, I saw even my most math resistant students’ move from below basic on the CMA to basic or proficient.

Whenever my students have some free class time, they pick up DreamBox on their iPads and do a lesson.  That’s definitely going to add up to a whole lot of new math learning by the end of the year!

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools enrolled Dreambox this year across our elementary schools.  We continue to hear very positive reviews from students, teachers and parents during its initial year in our district.

DreamBox reports highlight exactly where there are gaps in each student’s math background.

I often assign 20 minutes on DreamBox as homework. This is especially useful when students are not ready to practice the skill being taught .

We have to keep moving forward in our classes, but there are just instances when kids have missed something along the way—either through an absence, or just not “getting it.” With DreamBox, I can have fifth grade students that don’t understand place value review and understand at their own pace. DreamBox helps to fill those educational gaps at the exact time and place that each child needs it … certainly something that I cannot provide for every student during our classroom time
