We have 120 diverse kindergarteners in our school. The background of these students is from affluent to poverty level. Our school has a large inclusion program as well as many gifted students. We meet our students needs by differentiating our instruction.
Our school is large with over 900 students Pre-K through fifth grade.
Our curriculum focuses on student inquiry-based learning with a global perspective. For this age, hands-on learning is essential. We just don't always have the materials we need.
My kindergarteners visit literacy and math centers daily where they practice the skills recently introduced to them. At their reading centers, they are reading, writing, and working with words which all reinforce the necessary skills to become fluent readers. At the math centers they are working on number sense. These children already LOVE the centers. The addition of an Osmo classroom kit would accelerate their learning in a way that paper/pencil activities cannot address.
I am requesting an Osmo classroom kit to enhance the important literacy and math work my students experience daily.
This accessory for the iPad is a highly-engaging way to support their word work/reading and problem solving through the use of play! My students will enjoy learning in a new way.
