Our community of 15 small town Iowa first graders are a truly great bunch. They're avid readers who are eager to learn and grow as life-long learners. Each of them has unique passions and interests that drive their learning and makes them each exceptional students. Like all first graders thought, they also have lots and lots of wiggles just waiting to get out. They enjoy being given the opportunity to make their own choices and express their thoughts and opinions.
Several of the first graders struggle with anxiety, which is exasperated during spelling and math times. The OSMO will provide the opportunity for the first students to practice necessary skills in a fun, stress-free way! With the OSMO the first graders will be able to play and learn using hands on materials and games on the iPad. Giving them the opportunity to use technology in a meaningful and purposeful way.
The OSMO will be particularly useful for those who struggle with anxiety, while also providing a great learning opportunity for each of the first grade students.
I cannot wait to see the confidence a tool like OSMO can provide for struggling students.
