My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Many students in my school come to the library Makerspace saying they love the materials and it helps them understand what teachers are teaching in the classroom.

Unfortunately, our materials are limited and while students anxiously wait their turn, it may take weeks before each student has an opportunity to utilize the materials.

Each child that enters the library Makerspace absolutely loves learning and enjoys using the STEM materials to connect their learning experiences. The most engaging part of Makerspace materials is it meets each student as an individual and allows success at every level for every student which is critical to building self esteem and a lifelong love of learning.

Teaching students with such a passion for learning, is a rewarding experience for me. I can't imagine not doing everything within my power to provide additional learning opportunities for my students.

My Project

We are requesting two OSMO Genius packs to practice math and literacy skills while having fun and being creative! Osmo is a highly engaging software used with an iPad to challenge students' critical thinking and STEM learning. OSMO also provides immediate feedback for students which is a critical component to learning.

Using Tangrams, lower grade students explore shapes, spatial reasoning and perception, while upper grade students are able to make connections to previous learning and real world experiences.

Using the Numbers Game, students explore numbers, math, critical thinking and problem solving while having fun! Practice in a fun, engaging way is the best way to learn!

From exploring sounds and letter combinations to practicing sight words the spelling and literacy component of OSMO provides invaluable literacy experiences in a highly engaging activities.
