My Students

My first grade students love to learn! Every morning they walk into our classroom with a big smile. They love to read, to be read to, to play math games, and to work on coding and write stories. They are curious and inquisitive children, and they challenge me every day to grow with them and be the best I can be.

We work hard to create a classroom community where students can take a risk to explore, wonder and discover the world around them.

We ask questions, share our ideas, expand our learning environment using technology, and publish our work to share with the world. They work and collaborate with one another to learn.

Our school also focuses on character building. Children's kindness and compassion are recognized and celebrated. We are proud to be a part of an amazing school. We are family. We learn, play, laugh and grow together!

My Project

Ozobot Bit Coding Robots allow students to code in two different ways. One way is to draw lines and color codes to program the robots; the other is to write algorithms using computers or iPads. For my students it will be easy to learn how to code by drawing lines, but with Ozobots there is always a way to challenge those who are interested in learning block coding.

Ozobots will allow my students to think critically and creatively.

My plan is to use Ozobots not only to teach my students how to code, but also to introduce them as a tool to show their learning in other curriculum areas. For example, in science students may show how the sun moves across the sky by coding the robot (the sun) to move across a map of the sky. In social studies the students can travel across the United States landscape using the Ozobots. They can create a map that shows rivers, then the Ozobots boats can float down the river. Or the Ozobots cars can climb up and down the Rocky Mountains. In Language Arts they can use the robot as a main character of a story and make it move from one event to another on a story board to show the story sequence.

The students will be excited to use these tiny robots for any projects, but the most valuable lesson comes when they are working together to brainstorm how to use the Ozobots to show what they learned in a content area. The possibilities are endless!
