I am the librarian at a low-income elementary school in an urban area. We have students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students live in apartments within walking distance of our school. I serve students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We are a minority-majority school and have many different cultures represented.
I hope to provide experiences for our students that they do not get outside of school.
I want to help provide them with every chance to enjoy and succeed in school.
The Cube Stackers and Poppin Pictures will allow the students in lower grades to practice the ideas of patterns and sequencing. The concepts can then be transferred to the idea of coding. The Robot Turtle games will help me teach the younger students the ideas behind coding. Through the game they will be able practice a sequence and the steps from one point to another. The Potato Pirate game will give a little more complexity to the concepts of Robot Turtle.
I want to get robots in the younger students' hands.
The Code-a-Pillar is a beginning robot that will help them learn the concepts of coding. These activities will help our students to become successful in the technology world with beginning computer science ideas.
