My amazing students are eager to learn and naturally curious about everything! Most of our Kindergartners did not attend preschool and are just embarking on their academic journey. They are the newest members of our Title I school of approximately 700 students.
90% of our families qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and their access to technology is limited.
We think that working with the Osmo Genius Kits and iPads will give our students a fun opportunity to learn with technology that they would otherwise not have access to. Hopefully soon our four Kindergarten classrooms (nearly 100 students) will be excitedly sharing these Genius Kits and thanking you!
The Osmo Genius Kits, iPads, and cases will enhance our play-based, full-day Kindergarten program. Funding this project will finally give our Kindergarten students access to technology in the classroom. They can have interactive fun while developing their math and literacy skills as they play with numbers, shapes, and letters. The Osmo Genius Kits and iPads will be shared by our four Kindergarten classrooms during their library times (nearly 100 students). The carrying cases, designed to hold all the little pieces, will make it easy for teachers to check out the portable Osmo Genius Kits and iPads for student use in math and literacy centers.
Our school is rich in what truly matters; amazing students, a caring and dedicated staff, and a strong sense of community that celebrates our diversity.
Unfortunately, our students do lack resources and access to technology. These Osmo Genius kits, iPads, and cases are sure to be a hit with our littlest Wildcats!
