Help me give my students an iPad and Osmo Educational Play Coding Systems to explore science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics through thought provoking hands-on play.
My 3rd grade class is filled with highly inquisitive students. At this age, they are really starting to explore the diverse community around them and the highly inclusive people who make a difference in their community. What better way for my students to understand about citizenship and community leaders than by watching generous donors in action.
My students come from many different backgrounds, which is a wonderful by-product of serving a large military community.
I teach in a Title I school in Eastern North Carolina that was impacted by Hurricane Florence where about 74% of the students receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch. A high number of the students also participate in the backpack program that ensures the students have enough food to last the weekend.
Kids love to play and watching my students enjoying themselves with the iPad while using Osmo is phenomenal. Learning with Osmo helps students to prepare for future 21st century jobs by building critical reasoning and financial literacy skills. Students get the opportunity to work on reading and math skills in a fun and exciting way. The laughter alone is worth it. After dealing with Hurricane Florence, we need a little more laughter in class. Osmo is very beneficial when trying to differentiate because it has games that meets the needs of at-risk students as well as those who need to be challenged. For struggling readers, the students are able to work on phonics or word parts while others may work on multisyllabic or compound words.
Osmo is a highly structured, fun-filled way for students to develop creative problem-solving and spatial relationship skills through hands-on gameplay.
The Tangram game is a great activity that “exercises spatial and visual problem-solving skills.” Students start off slow but quickly gathers steam to go up in difficulty with each level of success. Osmo has a wonderful take on “do you see what I see,” and if you do, how do you see it. When it comes to words, students interpret challenging pictures and work on spelling patterns while trying to beat the clock or an opponent. This requires them to think quickly and use strategies learned in class or developed on their own.
Please consider helping put fun back into the classroom with an Osmo and iPad.
