Sorry the pictures are in reverse order! We have been using the DBOX for math in our classroom and not only have the kids been loving it, I have seen positive changes in their spacial awareness when it comes to writing and putting things away, as well as their ability to problem solve in other areas of math. We decided last week that we would have a DBOX derby where the kids would compete against each other putting together different preset "puzzles" and by Friday we would be down to 4 winners representing each desk group who would compete in the championship/ Here are our champions of the DBOX Derby! One champion did not want to be in the pictures. Xander was our 1st place winner!
The 4 champions were awarded medals and then set out to complete the "W" puzzle which they all thought at first was impossible. After about 7 minutes, I let the other kids help the champion from their group with the puzzle and shortly after that we had our winner! 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places all then happened within seconds of each other (once the kids were able to convince their brains that it was indeed possible to do the "W" puzzle!)
