The Elementary School that I teach at is a diverse group of about 475 K-5th graders. Almost half of the population we teach are Karen refugees from Thailand Camps. Because of this, many of our students are English Language Learners. Our school is located in a lower SES part of Omaha. 94% of our students receive free and reduced lunch. Many of our students have little to no support at home. School is where they recieve support, love, encouragement, and stability. Our school motto is “Work Hard and Be Kind”, this fits our students perfectly because they strive to achieve this each and everyday!
The Genius Osmo Kit will enhance our Reading and Math rotations, and even all subject areas. With the Osmo Kit, I can create spelling bee contests, math games, vocabulary quizzes and even material relevant to social studies and science. There is also a public album option that I can access free material to engage my students. Students are actively engaged in learning when they use technology and with this Osmo kit I will be able to support my learners and keep them engaged.
Technology is becoming a bigger part of our lives and it is so important to be able to expose my students to technology they would not otherwise have access to.
The Genius kit also has an introduction to coding app that my students could learn basic coding skills to build upon when they get to Middle School. Rather than just playing games, they are given the opportunity to design the game and play it with others. When students take ownership of their learning they flourish. Please help me bring this engaging and unique technology into my classroom for my students!
