We do and we LOVE our Osmo station in our classroom!
I started with the Osmo Genius Kit which has all the necessary pieces to get you started and can be used in both math and reading centers.
You will need a regular sized Ipad (mini devices won’t work) to place into the base. The base creates a table or the surface the iPad is sitting on the playing field. Student interaction takes place on the surface, not on the iPad itself, which creates enough room for two players.
The Genius Kit comes with Words, Numbers, Words, Tangrams, Osmo iPad Base, Masterpiece, and Newton. I use Words as a reading and Numbers (which has both number and subitizing tiles) for Math centers. We have recently added Coding and Pizza Co. (fantastic tool game to practice counting back money!) to our classroom collection.
To keep track of who has played each game I have created SIGN IN SHEETS and AN EDITABLE SCHEDULE which is available in my TpT store. I keep a clipboard for each of the games at the Osmo stations, and students log their name and date of play.
Within this resource, I have added an editable Osmo schedule sheet because last year it worked better to have an assigned day for my students. There were some friends who were rushing through their work so that they could have a turn on the Osmo and the schedule solved that problem for us.
I would love to hear how you use Osmo in your classroom!
