Letter From A Student

Posted by Alexey Kudashev on May 18, 2012 2:00:00 AM
Mrs. Francis, the teacher whose story we sharedearlier this week, sent us a letter from one of her students that have been using Wowzers.

Dear Mr. Trainor,

Hi I am Marshal and I am in the 4th grade.  I have been using Wowzers since February.  I like it because I can build a buzz pod.  I liked the place value game because know I know how to do it.  I learned place value, how to count money, how to make change and estimating.  Wowzers is more fun than doing it out of a book because my hands don’t get tired.  It really helps me when it reads to me.  It was different because you get to do a quest and adventures and you get to the math games.

I get out of school on Friday and will work on Wowzers this summer. I am going to Middle School and so is Mrs. Francis. Will you please write back to me? Thank you for making Wowzers!

We were so happy to hear firsthand how Wowzers is helping students learn while having fun! Marshal was able to effectively use the program to help him learn important concepts from the common core math standards and the immersive, virtual world of Wowzers rewarded and encouraged him to keep going. 

We love to see success stories like this, particularly from students, so I promptly replied to Marshal, thanking him for taking the time to write to us. I also included this picture of our development team:
