My Students

Many times in class, students have already mastered the content before the teacher has taught the lesson. We are looking to broaden our Title I students' knowledge by increasing a variety of different skills to help them continue to learn and absorb knowledge within the school day, even if they have mastered the content before it has been taught. The students we have at our school are open-minded and love technology. Since we do not have a dedicated technology class, teachers manage to teach technology and the core subjects with in their classrooms.

A lot of the students are very eager to code and experiment with new robots.

We will be implementing a time on Friday where students will be able to join a class to learn how to code.

My Project

We are working on building a Friday Coding Class for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Many of our coding materials are for second grade through fifth. We are looking to use Botley Coding Bundle for our kindergarten and first grade students at our school to be able to see their algorithms play out automatically. Students in kindergarten and first grade will be able to complete challenges that integrate their core curriculum into coding.

We will be working with students on unplugged activities and activities that they are able to plug and see the results of their algorithm.

We think coding is an important component to help support students in problem solving and critical thinking. This is a great way to plant seeds in student’s lives that would hopefully spark a interest in the fields of science, technology and engineering.
