Coding for Kindergartners!

My students need Osmo Coding Jam to build innovative thinkers and problem solvers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Kindergartners are curious and want to make sense of the world. They are constantly asking questions, looking at things in new ways, and wanting to know more. They are also learning how to be internationally-minded, confident, and caring community members. I engage my students and highlight their interests through powerful inquiry-based projects.

My school has a diverse population of students spanning all economic levels.

A large percentage receive free or reduced-price lunch. They live in rural Colorado and want to make a difference in the world. We can create magic in this room with your help!

My Project

The class loves Osmo products, so this is sure to be a hit! Osmo products are award-winning because they make technology interactive and give instant feedback. With Osmo Coding Jam, students place tangible blocks into patterns and sequences (Coding), creating unique music. They play beyond the screen by using special coding tiles and a mirrored device that attaches to the iPad, reflecting back the tiles that are laid down in front of it.

These materials teach students to think, learn from their mistakes, be creative, and problem solve.

Students will move through multiple levels of difficulty, learning at their own pace, keeping them challenged and engaged. They will know if their answers or correct or not in real time.

I will have this technology available to students during math centers. We are doing a big unit on coding and this program fits in perfectly. Students use the physical blocks to create lines of code that then tell the iPad what to do. This will be a great continuation of our work with computer programming. It shows students that through coding they can do so much, such as compose music. Thank you for considering this project. Students will be asking for more coding time!
