43 Teacher Responses I have been using LOGO for two weeks now with my students. Some are doing very well. (Ryan Dorsey, 9th grade teacher in Chatnam) We have been doing some pre- learning of skills before going to the software. We have spent time on symmetry and reinforcing vocabulary needed. (Lori Hoover, 4th grade in Juneau) My 8th graders are doing a great job, but my 7th graders are struggling a little bit because some of the math introduced is so new to them. (Topaz Shryock of Juneau)
