In our low socioeconomic, rural school, many of my first grade students have challenging home lives, and then are expected to be successful at school. Students need to come to school excited to be there to help motivate them to be the best they can be!
My goal is to create a classroom environment that supports engagement, makes students excited to come to school, and fun!
With a classroom environment like this it will help students learn and be even more successful!
All of my students love getting to use technology, but also love to use handheld manipulatives! Osmo’s give them the opportunity to do both! These fun and engaging tools will be used as a center during both literacy and math times!! Giving them the opportunity to apply the skills they are learning in the classroom, learn from each other, and learn the social skills needed to work as a team! Currently the iPads available in our classroom are only used for listening centers. The addition of Osmo’s in our classroom would greatly enhance student engagement and learning and motivate students in a whole new way!
