I teach 1st grade at an elementary school in a very transient area. Our school population has grown tremendously over the past few years and so has our diversity. We have students from all different backgrounds with a large percentage of students on free or reduced lunch.
Even though I have a high number of students in my classroom, I make sure I meet their needs on a daily basis.
Teaching 1st grade is so rewarding because the students are so excited and eager to learn new skills.
Literacy and math workstations are a huge part of our instructional day. With technology taking over the world, it’s time to jump on the bandwagon and incorporate more technology stations into our day. My class has the iPads already, we just need the resources to go along with them.
These requested Osmo Genius Kits will give my students a hands-on approach to working with letters and numbers on a variety of skills.
1st graders love to work with manipulatives and technology so adding Osmos to my classroom would be beneficial.
Osmo Genius Kits can help the struggling readers with beginning, medial, and ending sounds and it can help advance the higher readers by working with blends, digraphs, and multisyllabic words. It can do the same for math, as well, by helping with their addition and subtraction fact fluency.
These kits will be used daily and every student in my class will be able to rotate to them at least 2-3 times each week.
