Wonder Workshop Class Connect is a great addition to our technology curriculum. It allows the teachers to see exactly where students are in their progress with coding and students are able to work at their own pace which allows for differentiation. The students love Dash and Dot and I love how easy it is to document their learning!”
LINDSEY S.2ND GRADE TEACHER
“As math coach, I am always looking for activities that will engage my students and yet give them authentic math practice on their grade level standards. The robots are extremely engaging, and make the students want to do the problems so that they can move the robot.”
KIMBERLY J.MATH COACH/TEACHER
DETAILED LESSON PLANS
“The teacher lesson plans were VERY thorough. I loved the videos included for the students along with the multitude of options for the teacher. It makes it very easy to fit your time constraints, student levels and needs, enrich your higher students and generally meet all the needs of every child.”
