My Students

My class consists of 18 Kindergarteners who are energetic, eager to learn, and highly motivated by technology. Our students live in a low-income neighborhood with some parents working multiple jobs to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. Our school serves 100% free breakfast and lunch to all students.

My students live in a neighborhood that was named the most diverse neighborhood in the United States.

Their families come from all over the world with different learning styles, values, and languages. In my class we have at least 7 different ethnicities with 30% of my students working on improving their English language.

My Project

The iPads and Osmo will increase my students interest in learning. Osmo is a fun engaging interactive system that will improve mathematics knowledge, reading skills, and creativity for all my students. Being from a low-income neighborhood students, do not have access to much technology like this.

My students need more exciting learning opportunities and experiences with technology they may not have access to any where else.

This will help give them that opportunity. The Osmo Genius Kit includes 5 games which includes Words, Numbers, Tangram, Newton, and Masterpiece. Students will be matching numbers, adding, and multiplying. They will practice letter recognition, decoding, and building words. Rules of physics, gravity, and building confidence in creativity are also areas of study. Osmo and iPads will be a great addition to our classroom learning. iPads will be beneficial, not only with Osmo, but also with hundreds of other educational apps that are available.
