Mrs. Baryiewski from Hackettstown NJ is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning to Read with iPads & Osmo

My students need iPads and the Osmo kit to utilize hands-on, interactive technology. The Belkin headphone splitter allows up to 5 students on the same iPad. The bumper cases are essential to protect the iPads.

My Students

I teach First Grade at a K-4 elementary school. My students are just learning how to become independent readers and are engaged every day in small group literacy activities.

For two months, our school was closed due to elevated fungal populations and was remediated to ensure the safety of students and staff.

As part of that remediation, items that were not able to be remediated were discarded. As we've transitioned back to our school, I have made many changes in my classroom with a new outlook.

My students would greatly benefit from new materials and tools for learning. I specifically am hoping to incorporate technology as it is something that would not need to be remediated or discarded and would be valuable for years to come.

My Project

Having iPads and Osmo in the classroom will enhance my students learning experience and ultimately make them better readers. The Osmo Genius Kit includes interactive, hands-on games that meet Language Arts and Mathematic standards and also meets 21st Century Skills.

We will use the iPads during Literacy Work Stations so students can work independently and in small groups.

The iPads are needed to run the Osmo system while the audio splitter will help to increase the number of students who can benefit from the station. The cases are essential to protect the iPads so that this project will serve many students for years to come.
