My Students

My school is a public charter school. I have a bright and eager to learn group of 1st graders.

My school has a diverse population of students, many of whom receive free or reduced lunch.

A large proportion of students speak English as a Second Language. Many of my students have ADD and ADHD and would benefit from having these items in our classroom. Many of my students are still recovering from hurricane Irma and don’t have much in their own homes. They are so excited to come to school each and every day.

My Project

My students love technology! Because of this, I have integrated technology into many of my reading and math lessons. I have found students are more engaged and ready to learn when technology is even a small part of our lessons for the day.

This project will allow us to use Botley the Robot to not only practice coding skills but to also integrate coding and robotics into our reading and math lessons.

Many 21st century careers will require my students to know coding skills. To help them with this, I try to expose my 1st graders to a wide variety of technology in my classroom. My students also love using technology as a way to create and think outside the box. By coding Botley the Robot to complete different tasks, students will need to use critical thinking skills to get their robots to do what they want them to. Help me to develop a classroom of critical thinkers ready to solve the problems of tomorrow!
