I have a range of students who are at all different levels and needing differentiation in order to challenge them or support their areas of struggle. I am supporting a student with a visual impairment, who needs many accommodations met, five students who were diagnosed with dyslexia who also need interventions throughout the day. As for my other 14 students, they have their areas of struggle as well as their areas of understanding, and I have my students who are seeking out the challenging side of education.
I am meeting with small groups to give instruction for math daily and meeting with two to three reading groups every day.
I want to provide my students with more opportunities to practice using numbers, or spelling for them to feel successful without having to depend on me or their future teachers solely. I want to allow them to take ownership of their own learning, and I believe this will provide them with that chance to do so!
The Osmo Genius Kit materials are resources we do not currently have in our classroom and they will engage the students in spelling and math! I want to reach my students with the opportunity to be creative, open their minds to a different type of learning, and take ownership of their successes!
It will make a difference to my students when they are able to practice their high frequency words during our literacy stations, learning how to spell them when writing a story, or responding to a reading they have done in class.
This will also allow my students to practice their math fluency facts with the numbers feature/app that is provided with the Osmo Genius Kit as well.
