BeeBots Bring Coding into Early Elementary Classroom!

Help me give my students BeeBots to incorporate coding into literacy and math activities!

My Students

Every day our children come to school with a smile and an open heart and mind. We create a classroom community of learners, explorers, engineers, readers, writers, artists, and friends. Our school inspires students to exceed their own expectations. We have fun, get messy, make mistakes, and try new things.

Our classroom blends 21st-century skills with strong foundational skill instruction to create learners that are ready for the future.

We are creative in how we integrate technology into our classroom by using a variety of options to help students access different modes of learning as well as alternative ways to demonstrate successful mastery of skills. Students are able to go beyond the classroom walls and become global citizens. Blending traditional learning with a variety of technology in a collaborative setting helps us create a community of learners with many different ways to access and demonstrate their learning and creativity.

Our students are honestly amazing! We work so hard but have plenty of time to have fun and laugh together. It is truly a classroom family, we love and support each other. My students' passion for learning is why I come to work everyday!

My Project

“Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.”

—Stephen Hawking, Theoretical Physicist, Cosmologist, Author

Beebots are small robots that can be coded to move along a grid. Educators and students can create grids that have a variety of information that integrates literacy, math, social studies, and the sciences. Students can code the robot to spell a word, retell a story, create a sentence, solve a math equation, move along a map, or follow the stages of a life cycle. Our Beebots will be used for students in Pre-K to 5th grade. Besides being an impactful way to integrate coding into their academic foundational skills, students will also increase their collaborative skills by working together in pairs and groups to code the bot.

As an educator, I need to prepare my students for careers in the future, and coding will be a big part of that, no matter what field they will be in!

Something as simple as a small programmable bot that can be used in everyday lessons can create the idea that coding is part of our everyday life and isn't just a skill but the language of the future. The BeeBots will be used by all students in our building!
