Mrs. Werner from Norfolk NE is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

I teach Title Reading & Math in an Elementary School. My students are your struggling readers then in which also plays a part in struggling with math word problems. But... they still come to school everyday with a smile and ready to learn, I want to keep that excitement going with new way to practice their learning.

As adults, you think of things that are hard for us and how easy it is to give up, but yet I am asking my struggling students to keep striving for success and not give up.

Their determination is what drives my teaching everyday. It also has me researching ideas and new technology to help them learn.

My Project

Having Osmo Genius Kit in my classroom would be a new fun way for all my struggling students to learn. My own children have them in their school and talk about how much they enjoy practicing their reading and math skills. So as a parent and teacher I started research into how they could help my struggling learners. Having a hands on new approach using technology would make for engaged learners.

Being able to manipulate technology materials for learning will catch my students' attention and bring a new love for learning.

With an Osmo, students can use letter tiles, number tiles, shapes and drawing to enhance their educational experience. Even better is they are actually teaching themselves, they are in control of their learning.
