My kindergarten students come to school with incredible enthusiasm for learning and they love to be engaged in hands-on activities. They come from a variety of backgrounds and, for some, it is their first school experience.
I teach at an International Baccalaureate Primary Years school with approximately 800 students in Pre-K through 5th grade.
Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective. Under my care is a group of wildly curious kindergarteners who are eager to learn and have fun.
Osmo works with the ipad to integrate technology, creativity, and hands-on learning. Essentially, it the perfect educational tool for kindergarten students! I am requesting eight kits of three different varieties in order to address multiple skills and interest levels.
Each Genius kit includes number tiles, letter tiles, and tangram pieces to be used with 5 different game apps that build number sense, reading skills, hand-eye coordination, problem solving, and more!
The Creative Kit includes programs that help students work on creative thinking, build confidence in their creativity, and can even bring their drawings to life through animation! Of course, in a world filled with technology it is valuable for students to learn with it, but also to learn about it. With the Coding Awbie game, students can develop basic coding skills that help them understand more about how technology works. Through these kits, we will have a total of six bases that will be used for small group learning as well as part of educational free-choice centers. These resources will be an exciting and valuable addition to our kindergarten classroom!
