My Students

Most of my students come from difficult home lives in a rural, poverty-stricken area. Needless to say, any and all resources I can have available to share with them will greatly benefit them. The students I teach love anything related to technology and STEM/STEAM.

My students seek an engaging, hands-on learning experience that is offered by today's STEM resources.

Typical didactic teaching styles no longer capture the attention of today's students. They need to have the opportunity to see, touch, feel and experience the concepts I'm attempting to teach them. Due to this, I find the Osmo would be an excellent fit in my classroom.

Having the technology available in my classroom will help ensure these students are engaged and not left behind. Having fun while learning can be a challenging task in today's fast pace of learning. This becomes even more challenging my student is also facing a learning disability. My students are an energetic group of children who are excited about learning.

My Project

During center time, my students break up into groups and work on either math, science, or literacy.

Osmo games will allow my students to learn math facts, spelling words, science concepts, and story comprehension in a new exciting fashion!

My class will use the Osmo kit in their daily learning centers to solve puzzles, spell on-screen images, add, count money, multiply and develop their knowledge in science.

Osmo will make such a big difference in my students' lives. These students do not get to experience STEM in our school and I am trying to incorporate this into my classroom. Students will be able to use Osmo across curricular.
