Hot Off The Press!
The OSMO resource in my TpT store is now fully editable!
I have also added a Weekly Schedule form that is editable. With this form, I am able to group my students flexibly for math and reading centers and use the clear acrylic frames from Dollar Tree to display the forms in our classroom center areas.
If you already own this product you can redownload to get the updated files. If you would like to check out this classroom resource you can click on the image or Pin It for later.
This resource now includes both printable and editable formats in both color and printer-friendly files. I have also created a weekly schedule which is editable to assign days to individual students. I print these weekly schedules on Astrobright paper to add some pop. Having students assigned to an individual day eliminated students rushing through their work and ensured that all students had an opportunity to interact with the Osmo activities.
This past year, I printed out 2 Weekly Schedules, one for short weeks when Monday was a holiday and one for a full week Monday through Friday. We realized that the students assigned to Monday were frequently missing out on their day. The four-day schedule adds a few more students to each day but resolved a lot of arguments and upset kiddos.
During Reading, we use the Osmo as a literacy center and students interact with the game Words. During Math, students engage with either the Pizza Co. game, Tangrams, or the Numbers game. Numbers works with addition all the way up to multiplication and has both number tiles and subitizing tiles. Pizza Co. is all about money, making change, running a little store and interacting with the on-screen characters.
The Coding game has pieces that are blocks of code with a “Run” button that students put together and use with the on-screen character. The games are very engaging and my students love them!
