Osmo

Just ordered 2 new Osmo iPad kits with my PTA money. Osmo kits include number, letter, and tangram manipulatives to use with students. If you would be interested in checking them out as a possible center activity to use with students, let me know and we can schedule a time to show you the kit. We have a total of 3 kits in the ITC office.


Mainly a primary iPad tool, but there are some uses for upper grades as well.

Students Using EdPuzzle this Week in Class
