Our school just purchased "Osmo" for each class. Osmo is an interactive, hands-on way to play with words, numbers and shapes. Essentially, there is a mirror in which the camera of an iPad picks up what your child places in front of it. The app registers what it is seeing and tells your child if they have the right answer displayed underneath the camera. We have been building French words, practicing adding and even creating origami type shapes using the "tangram osmo" app.
