As a former Warren Elementary student, Cindi had many opportunities to learn and practice Wixie. For Elena, who came to Cockeysville Middle from a private school, that wasn’t the case. Both girls, however, are big fans of the program.
“I think it’s easy to use,” says Cindi. She adds, “Some people get pretty shy saying things out loud and Wixie helps you write it the way you want to say it.”
Elena, who taught herself how to use Wixie, shares, “It’s easy to use and makes learning more fun, like making shapes and writing things your own way.”
Elena enjoyed putting her information all onto one page, while Cindi preferred to use many pages, each with a different fact. They liked having the choice to demonstrate their learning in the way that made the most sense to them and allowed them to show their creative sides.
For the Lunches Around the World assignment, students were asked to compare their lunch here in the United States with student lunches in Spanish speaking countries. Cindi compared her typical lunch to kids in Brasil.
Having the freedom to make many choices about their learning, including which tool is best, is just one of the many things both students love about their Spanish 6 class.
