The first day of Kindergarten can be very scary for these little ones. They are not sure of the their surroundings and what is to be expected of them. They have no idea how much they will grow and change from all of the things they will be learning over the next several months. As they are learning and growing, they don't always see it, but their family and teachers see their growth. This growth and change is truly amazing.
My students have grown into not only learners, but explorers, teachers, scientists, mathematicians, and experts.
We enjoy working together and teaching each other new things. In our room, you may see students sprawled out on the carpet collaborating on a task, in the library on rockers looking at books, standing while working at a pocket chart with their peers, or working together at a desk as they sway softly back and forth on a hokey stool. No matter where they are in our classroom and no matter what they are doing, they are doing their best to better themselves each and every day.
The Osmo Little Genius starter kit will be an additional Osmo resource my students will use within our classroom. This starter kit will really help students during the beginning to mid-point of our school year when we are focusing on the letters of the alphabet. My students will be able to use this tool during rotations in small groups and I will be able to use them when working with small groups to reinforce letter identification.
Every student is different and learns in different ways.
Some students learn best by using their hands and creating different things. This Little Genius starter kit will help those students build the letters we are learning, allowing them to create and learn the letters as they need to.
