“Many of my kids have struggled,” Anderson said.
That is when she learned how engaged her students became in areas they’ve struggled with.
“I mean, we have several that struggle,” she said. “Whenever they were doing the game it gives me feedback. I can get reports. It showed me one little boy and the one's he missed were his sixes, now he knows to work on that.”
The entire 4th grade participated in the online program, it was not mandatory. After the completion, Anderson learned the students received seventh place nationwide in the ‘grade-points’ category out of hundreds of schools.
“I can tell a difference in their testing,” Anderson said. “It shows they have gone up a little in their grade level.” “They were so involved. They came together as a whole. It makes me proud as a teacher.”
Anderson hopes the school will go beyond the 30-day trial and invest in the online program so more students in the district can get involved.
