Working in our small rural low-poverty Title I school, the students at Pope Elementary face difficulties in and out of school. Many of those challenges that cannot be seen or are not openly shared. I know that some students have difficult living situations. Many of our students don't have every day things that most of us take for granted.
The students at Pope Elementary are resilient and do amazing things every day especially when given the right opportunities.
We are always teaching them about pono (or doing what is right) and taking care of their ohana (or family).
I teach STEM and computer science classes to all of the students at my elementary school. I am always in search of materials that are educational, fun, and relevant for my students. Sometimes developing lessons that are relevant across multiple grade levels can be challenging and often times impossible. Although I have not worked hands on with Botleys before, from what I have read and seen online, this would be very useful to my library of materials and lesson ideas.
Botley the Coding Robot seems like it would be the perfect fit for what I need to teach (codIng, robotics, and basic computing) and the students I’m teaching to (grades K-6).
I am requesting 3 action challenge packs to help all of my students experience the coding in a fun and attention grabbing way.
