Touch It! Learn It! All Through Technology!

My Students

My first grade students come to school excited to learn and always asking, "What are we going to do next?" I love their enthusiasm and love for learning! They are like little sponges soaking up everything they can. My classroom is a very hands-on classroom. I believe that children must "do to learn". In the world today, children must learn through technology. It is imperative for them so they don't fall behind their peers. I once saw a quote that says,

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." Children today are immersed in technology.

This is their world.

Unfortunately, this past year many students were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Many of my students don't have the advantage of having technology at home. They come to school to learn to use it today to be able to be productive in tomorrow's world.

My Project

I have requested two Osmo Genius Kits which will be used in my classroom as an independent center during small group instruction. As my students work on the Osmo, the activities become more difficult as the children master them. The activities provided by the Osmo will not only include reading, but also math. These are both critical areas in first grade. Using Osmo, the children are able to manipulate letter tiles to spell words when a picture appears on the iPad screen. They are also able to do the same with number tiles as they practice their counting and adding skills. Our students live in a technological world, and we must provide them with all means possible to learn with technology.
