Earlier this week we ran a guest post by Mrs. Straith, who wrote about how she uses Wowzers every day with her 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade gifted classes. She loved Wowzers for it's robust classroom management system and how easy it was to differentiate and individualize each student's learning while still leaving room for group discussions. One of her 4th grade students has written a piece about Wowzers that will be published in their school newsletter this summer and she was so nice to let us share it with you!
Wowzers, Math is Fun!
by Maya G.-4th Grade Math Trailblazer
This year, the 4th grade Math Trailblazer students have been using an online math program called Wowzers, which is a virtual world. Each day we have a variety of activities to participate in including a tryout, a lesson, a practice, a game, a quest, and a quiz. The activities prepare us for the days quiz, which shows our teacher the results of how we did during the day. There are four lessons a week and on the fifth day we have a 20 question quiz, which assesses the whole week. Here is what my classmates had to say about Wowzers:
Wowzers is an amazing program because it is so fun, adventurous, and smart. Jacob S.
Wowzers helps ensure that you are getting your education and have fun while learning. Emily F.
I like Wowzers because it makes math more fun! Eli G.
I love the new Wowzers program because then I cant leave my stuff at school. Aydan F.
