My Students

I teach a 1st and 2nd grade combination class. My students are eager to learn, and they love to try new things. We have so much fun learning to read and understand math through hands-on projects and technology.

Even at the young at of 6 and 7, my students often know more than I do about technology, and they love teaching me new things to do on our iPads.

Every day is an exciting new adventure as we laugh and learn together!

My Project

This project will allow my students the opportunity to explore subject matters such as math, science, art, coding, and more. It gives them the opportunity to explore with hands-on technology.

Osmo Genius Kit will instill in students a love of learning through both technology and working with their hands.

Research shows that when students are excited and motivated, they are more likely to remember what has been learned. I am confident that the Osmo Genius Kit will do just that for my students.

My students get excited about technology and about working together. They learn best through hands-on manipulatives. Osmo will give my students the opportunity to have corroborative hands-on experiences to make learning fun and successful!
