My Students

My students come from various backgrounds. Their socioeconomic status varies. My students are curious learners. Our school is a Title I School, with limited resources for our very special population of students.

My students have intellectual disabilities, but that does not stop them from trying their best and learning as much as they can.

They are capable of understanding their surroundings, and they constantly want to explore their world. They enjoy learning and work so hard every single day. They are inspiring.

My Project

As we begin to learn coding skills the concept can be solidified through functional life skills. Learning to code is a great way to engage students in STEM activities.

The best way to learn these concepts is through hands-on art and science exploration!

Studies have shown that when students are able to draw out concepts they retain their knowledge and gain a deeper understanding. The Botley robot is ready to go fresh out of the box. This robot is a great way for students to learn coding without having to be on a screen. The robot comes with many exciting items to turn Science into fun!

My students will use the Botley kit to learn functional coding skills. We will be drawing out maps and obstacle courses. The students will integrate their artistic expression with the Botley kit and draw out various coding commands on their maps. The Botley will react to the coding commands that are drawn out and the students will see the real-life cause and effect of coding.

As students become more advanced and proficient in their coding skills they will be ready to learn more advanced techniques. Students can draw out their maps and add obstacles to be navigated through. What an amazing way to learn coding and map skills!
