Growing up as an educator’s daughter fostered my love of learning and the desire to become a teacher. I was raised in a rural district, but the type of education each student received dramatically differed depending on where they live and the type of family they were born into. My district happens to be one of those where most students come from broken homes. I currently teach in a rural NC district with nearly 80% of students receiving free breakfast/lunch.
In order to help students fall in love with learning, we must first give them a place where they are comfortable.
My hope is to provide my students with the tools and skills that they will need to be successful in their educational journey.
Learning math can sometimes make students feel stressed, which most often turns them away from it altogether. What if I told you that it is possible for students to learn and practice not only math, but also literacy without even knowing! The Osmo Genius Kit can help students to practice their fact fluency by challenges and competitions by playing Numbers. The Words game will help students with spelling and take them on Word-wide trips! Tangrams will help stimulate the mind by solving and creating awesome puzzles.
When students are engaged and having fun, that's when we know they are getting the most out of their learning time.
Along with the two Osmo Genius Kits, I am requesting two iPads that will support this program and make for easy transport and fast set-up for center time. Most students already know how to use an iPad, so having this as a classroom tool will provide additional engagement when work is finished.
