Holiday Gift Ideas
TCE 1st graders will have the opportunity to learn and practice skills through the use of OSMO! PTO has purchased 5 of these for the grade level and we are excited to start using them next semester. If you have never heard of it, check out the link below. We will use OSMO to help with fact fluency, spelling, creative thinking and problem solving. It is an accessory that attaches to the child’s iPad. With the use of the iPads camera, it allows students to practices skills in a more engaging way! We just thought we would pass along the suggestion to you as well! Visit www.playosmo.com for more info!
