Mrs. Cillis from S Richmond Hill NY is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need Osmos which is a tool that will help them become stronger readers and writers!
Imagine you are a six year old who is walking into their classroom in America for the very first time. They not sure what is going on and most of them have never learned how to read and write. That is the population of students that I work with.
I work in a school with a large percentage of students whose first language is not english.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds and all have very different schooling experiences in their short six years. We place a large focus on reading and writing at the first grade level which is why it is crucial that as a teacher I have the tools that I need to make that possible.
It is my goal to give my students all the tools they need to become successful in their own right!
Osmo will be a great tool for my students to use during literacy centers which we do daily. My students need games and activities that focus on the alphabet, letter recognition, and writing.
Through the use of an iPad, they will have the chance to practice the reading and writing skills, specifically spelling, which they need to be successful in literacy!
Through the use of Osmos, my students will have the chance to spell words based on the picture they are seeing. Osmo provides letter tiles for the students to physically manipulate the letters. Each letter they get right appears on screen, until eventually the entire word is revealed.
As the teacher, I can also upload our spelling words of the week to give my students an additional opportunity to practice them. By enhancing their spelling skills, they will become stronger readers and writers.
Osmo is a tool that utilizes technology to help students become stronger readers and writers! Your generous donation to our project will improve our 1st grade classroom by building a stronger reader and writer. Thank you so so much!
