Posted by Melinda Kolk on Oct 7, 2019 10:27:21 AM

Students in 4th grade are expanding their number sense to include fractions and decimals as well as building fluency with operations. They are ready to build foundations for algebraic thinking as well as geometric reasoning.

Wixie's curriculum library includes a range of math-focused templates you can use for formative assessment purposes or to support student thinking as they tackle complex math tasks in your classroom.

Teachers can assign Wixie activities directly to students, or customize to differentiate them for specific learners in their classroom. Written and voice instructions for students show in the Wixie interface. You can also ask students to record their voice to explain their mathematical thinking.

Create and share custom curriculum in Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Aug 1, 2019 11:19:33 AM

Students can use the tools in Wixie to demonstrate their learning on a blank page through a combination of text, images, original artwork, and voice narration. Students can also use pre-made Wixie templates for formative assessments, to support thinking, and to guide project work.

Wixie makes it easy to create and share these templates so you can design customized curriculum for your school or district. When students and teachers log in, their Wixie home page shows a folder with the user’s school name and district in the list on the left. Students and teachers can open these folders to browse and use customized Wixie templates created and shared by educators at their site.
