ORIGO Education Announces New Program Adoption by Kennewick School District in Washington State
ORIGO Stepping Stones 2.0 (SS 2.0) builds conceptual understanding through language and discourse, powerful visual models and engaging activities that foster student thinking. The program also includes Slate, a suite of interactive instructional tools for teachers, which can be run from a computer or tablet and displayed on a classroom screen or on individual tablets. This flexibility allows the educator to conduct classroom teaching or provide more individualized instruction.
“I love the deep understanding it gives kids. My students have a true understanding of each subject they have learned. It teaches deep, not wide,” said Chenoa Meagher, kindergarten teacher at Kennewick School District. “I am so excited that each lesson and module follows the ‘concrete, pictorial, abstract’ progression of learning. This progression is crucial to their development and I don’t have to supplement anything to accomplish that progression.”
“ORIGO understands that it is vital that teachers cover critical concepts at the onset to help students lay a solid foundation of mathematics before branching on to the next topic,” said Jessica Bobo, the early childhood mathematics consultant and author of ORIGO Stepping Stones Pre-K. “SS 2.0 is rich with content and support, including MathEd learning videos and ORIGO One videos, that help teachers develop their mathematics practices.”
