Posted by Melinda Kolk on Oct 4, 2022 7:45:00 AM

Students in 6th grade are on the verge of complex mathematical concepts. Wixie provides tools they can use to visualize complex procedures and explain their mathematical thinking.

Creating Books in Wixie

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Sep 20, 2022 3:28:27 PM

If you are finding it a struggle to get students to read, try asking them to write and publish their own books. This not provides obvious opportunities for writing practice, it inspires reading fluency and oral language as students work to perfect their books during the editing process.

Wixie makes it easy to support the writer and publisher in all of us. Built-in authoring, drawing and voice options provide multiple supports for student writing, and Wixie’s sharing options provide a variety of ways to publish the piece so that it will be right for your audience.
