My Students

I work at a Title I school in a low socioeconomic area. All of our students receive free lunch because of the economic need. My students are English Language Learners and many of them are being raised in single-parent households. These curious and creative learners are also part of the Gifted and Talented Program.

Even though they may face so many challenges at home, they are always excited and eager to learn.

Please help these young enthusiastic minds reach their full potential!

My Project

My English Language Learners need help and practice putting together words and sentences. The Osmo base would not only help my students gain a better understanding in reading and math, but it would do it in a fun and interactive way!

The Osmo games encourage STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) while giving students the opportunity to problem solve and work collaboratively.

My students would use the Osmo kit during Math stations to work with money, fractions and geometry games. During Reading stations, they would use it to work with word games. They would use this base on a daily basis with a group or independently.

We are in desperate need of 3 Osmo iPad cases because the Osmo base will only fit an Osmo case. No other iPad case fits in the Osmo base. The only other alternative is having these kiddos use the Osmo without any protection to the iPad. These first graders have slippery hands and require a heavy-duty case. Please help us protect our iPads!
