My classroom is “Planet Happy Smiles!" I believe in making learning fun and exciting for every student. As you walk into my classroom, you see a room full of happy faces. This quote shares my philosophy of education: “Teachers who love teaching...teach children to love learning!” I have a classroom of kids who love to learn!
Technology is very important to me, and I would love to continue adding meaningful pieces of technology to my classroom.
My elementary school is located in Texas! We are not a Title One school, so our funds are very limited.
One of the goals for my students is to make them better thinkers. If they can think through a problem, they can solve it! I am continually looking for new games to add to my ipads that will challenge my students.
I have found an amazing educational tool that allows students to interact with an iPad called Osmo.
Osmo challenges students to think and learn with problems and puzzles by using hands-on manipulatives that they can touch and move when connected to an iPad.
It allows students to work in small groups and stations to monitor their own learning. Osmo encourages them to collaborate, create, problem solve and use critical thinking to complete tasks. It can serve as an extension to their learning in a fun and engaging way!
By adding another iPad, the students will be able to work collaboratively in a small group or station using the Osmo educational tool!
Education is changing so much, and I want to provide my students with the skills that they'll need for the future! It’s exciting to see them become involved in their own learning!
