My Students

Our first grade students love to come to school and are enthusiastic learners. They love to learn by exploration and engagement. They walk into class each day, eager to find out what the day entails! We love to give them opportunities to learn by using 21st century technology to expand their minds in reading, math and science.

First grade is a critical time to learn reading and math concepts that will build success in future years.

As teachers, we utilize various teaching techniques to accommodate the many learning styles of our students.

My Project

First graders love to collaborate with their peers to solve problems. They love to interact using 21st century learning tools and OSMO Genius Kits fit the bill perfectly!

We are asking for 7 OSMO Genius Kits for our 1st-grade classroom.

OSMO incorporates a fun, engaging way to practice math, and reading skills. It also introduces them to coding concepts at their level. OSMO is more than a game, it is a learning tool. It includes manipulative game pieces such as number tiles, letter tiles, and coding blocks.

OSMO fosters learning in key areas such as creative problem solving, art, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and common core. These OSMO kits will enhance our daily word work and math centers.
