My Students

Our school consists of students in grades PreK-5. They come from various backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. We are a very diverse school district with a low socioeconomic background. 100% of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

The common factor for all students is that they love to learn.

Their combined unique personalities create a fun, loving, energetic, and inquisitive classroom environment. The students in our classrooms are all from diverse backgrounds and bring uniqueness to our classroom community. They are 5 and 6 years old. They are clever, outgoing, and enthusiastic little learners.

My Project

The Osmo Coding kits will allow interactive coding experiences for my kinder students. Osmo is an educational hands on STEM activity that connects the physical and digital world. Osmo Coding technology encourages students to practice, math, problem solving, and critical thinking skills by manipulating digit tiles. The interactive activities and pencils will engage my students in curriculum-rich learning that is fun!

This project would provide my students hands-on learning that bridges technology and the physical world and builds stronger mathematicians, scientists and problem-solvers.

When my students are actively involved they are excited to learn! Their skills improve and they become more confident learners, capable of anything!
