First Graders Love Osmo!

First graders have been working on the game Numbers using the Osmo System.  Thanks to the Longmeadow Educational Excellence Foundation and Chelsea Berry, these systems can be found in every grade level for children to practice not only math, but a variety of skills.  The focus, teamwork, excitement and learning is palpable!

First graders are definitely ready to use Osmo in their classrooms!

First Graders Teach Us about Seasons!

Our phenomenal first graders spent several weeks learning about each season through interactive technology sites, each others' experiences and our friend, BrainPop Jr.!

In our culminating science project, students thought about all they had learned and are now sharing it with you!

Very impressive first graders!!
