My Students

My 2nd graders love to learn! They thrive with hands-on experiences and technology. They are an inquisitive group of children, who often seek out opportunities to extend their learning.

Many come from poverty and lack parental support, so they view school as a refuge.

My students help make our classroom feel like home. They are incredibly loving and put a smile on my face each and every day. It is a joy for me to watch them grow and learn!

My Project

Osmo is an interactive gaming system used in conjunction with a tablet. To be able to use the Osmo kits, my class would need 3 Amazon Fire tablets, bases to sit the tablets in, and the learning games that go with the system. My students jump at the chance to use technology, so this would allow me to review important 2nd-grade concepts/topics while keeping my students engaged.

I plan to use this as a learning center/station during my reading and math small group rotations.

The Osmo system has games that cover core subjects, like math and spelling, as well as games that deal with visual thinking and creative problem-solving.

Giving my students the option to use technology immediately boosts their interest and motivation. I hope that Osmo will enhance our learning and help us grow!
