A Waco ISD Education Foundation grant is helping kindergarten and first-grade students at Hillcrest PDS learn how to read, write and strengthen their problem-solving skills. The grant written by teachers Emily Draper and Tammy Johnston has enabled the school to purchase OSMO kits for each of its kindergarten and first-grade classroom. OSMO is a unique accessory for the iPad that comes with "games" that are changing the way a child plays and learns. The OSMO system consists of a stand, a camera attachment, and some specially designed games that help children learn to spell, read, write letters, recognize shapes and become problem-solvers.
