How I Use It
I love Words for Osmo as a classroom tool. The pre-loaded words/activities are great. However, the rue power comes from the ability to customize lists to meet the needs of your own classroom or students. I even created a list of family names at home for my pre-school daughter to practice her name. The interactivity and engagement is awesome.
My Take
Words for Osmo is an awesome tool. I love that two students can play the games/activities together as a simple competition. The only downfall is that the iPad needs to be removed from the case to use the tool. I am hoping this will improve as they receive customer feedback.
