My students need Osmo Gaming Systems to enhance creativity and critical thinking skills.
I teach two third grade classes math everyday for an hour and 10 minutes each. We spend the hour and 10 minutes engaged on a concept by using manipulatives, discussions, journal writing, and technology. I want my students to have a deep understanding of math and to realize they use math everyday.
My students are third grade students that enjoy coming to school.
It is a place for them to come and have their needs taken care of, whether it is physical or emotional. It is a safe place to come and make friends and enjoy learning. Our school is a Title 1 school that has a high percentage of students on free and reduced lunches. However, our students love coming to school everyday. Our staff's number one priority is the students. We make learning fun! I have high expectations for my students, therefore I teach in a way that allows students to demonstrate their deeper mathematical thinking and develop rigor of the Oklahoma state standards by communicating their mathematical thinking, participating in class discussions using academic vocabulary, and transferring skills between subject areas.
The Osmo game system for the iPad will allow my students to build word recognition and develop mathematical thinking. The focus will be on developing word recognition in order to build communication through writing and speaking. The Osmo will also develop a learning environment that promotes critical mathematical thinking. It will allow students to discover math concepts and how math works in the world around us. The project will create a student led environment in the classroom with the teacher being the facilitator. Small group tasks can help limit math anxiety and promote self-confidence.
I want my students to love math as much as I do.
I want them to develop a deep understanding of mathematics and see how it is used everyday in the world around us. The implementation of higher state standards will change mathematical pedagogy and we have to be prepared in the education of our students. The Osmo will implement lessons that allow students to complete high cognitive demand performance tasks as individuals or small groups. It will help students realize learning math can be fun.Read More
