It was my lucky day when I won 10 subscriptions to Wowzers at the annual Cue Conference in Palm Beach, CA. The perfect amount for my 4th grade Title I class in rural California. My students' demographics are low socio-economic and 70% are English language learners. We had been working hard in math all year, but barely making minimum achievement. Wowzers really turned it around for us.
It is amazing how this program differentiates for students. Student engagement dramatically increased. The students who were more advanced soared through the program, while struggling students started grasping the concepts. Students who were reluctant to do math, now couldnt wait to use Wowzers. The big "Ah-Ha" moment was when the entire class wanted to give up their recess to use Wowzers! That is when I knew this program, with excellent content and student engagement, is special.
Lucky? Yes! Wowzers has changed the way math is done in my classroom and I am looking forward to a full year of implementation next year.
