My Students

Hello! I am the STEM teacher and I teach children from prek to 5th. My students are 39% ELL. This is the first time in schools for many of these students from other countries.

I also have an ICT class on each grade and a horizon which is an 8:1:1 program for Autistic children (k to 3) as well as three 12:1:1 (k to 4).

My school is also a title 1 school which qualifies 97% of the students for free lunch based on their economic status.

My Project

As a first year STEM teacher I would like to introduce my students to the world of coding and robotics by using the Ozobot Educational Kit. The kit includes everything they need to begin this journey including lessons specific to the needs of the STEM program at my school. Each lesson covers several common core standards and they are listed at the beginning of each teacher handout. According to the STEM principles, each lesson has been designed to integrate topics across multiple subjects. Moreover, students work on projects with real-life backgrounds and connections to careers in STEM fields. Additionally, having students work on group projects around Ozobot fosters their ability to analyze, reason, and communicate ideas effectively as they pose, formulate, solve, and interpret solutions.

Additionally the students will also use the Ozobots as the mechanical system for other STEM challenges such as designing "Moon Rovers" and "Rock Carriers.

I know that each grade I teach will get use out of this amazing kit.
