Ms. Haberin reports that her students are enjoying the tangrams app with her Osmo kit, funded by a 2017 PTA minigrant! The tangrams were integrated with her geometry unit:
Hello,I just wanted to send a quick update about how my class is using the Osmo Genius Kits (that were purchased through a PTA mini grant last year, 2016-2017 school year) this year. Attached you will find some pictures of students using them.This is using the tangram app, which worked perfectly for our exploring geometry unit. The students manipulated 2D shapes in order to create larger images. They loved how their creation with the tangrams is represented on the iPad! I am looking forward to using the other apps included in the kit as the year progresses.Thank you again!Fondly,Ms. Haberin
The Osmo kits take advantage of the class iPads, providing hands-on interaction!
