My goal is to make my classroom fun and engaging. I want my students to love coming to school and to be active learners!
I have 24 kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students.
They come to school each day with big smiles on their faces and are ready to learn. I teach in a low income school with a high number of English language learners. My school is innovative and offers a wide variety of after school clubs to give opportunities to students that many probably wouldn't have otherwise.
I am requesting two Botley coding robot bundles for my TK and kindergarten students. My students will be able to use these programmable robots during our STEM time to learn how to create sequences of instructions (algorithms), develop an understanding of programming, collaborate with other students as they work as a team, and to learn advanced technology skills. These programmable robots will stimulate problem solving and critical thinking.
Botley robots are aligned to CSTA and ISTE Technology Standards and are perfect for younger students just learning about coding.
My students need to be able to have 21st-century technology skills in order to help prepare them for their current and future academics and their future careers. These Botley robots are ideal for kindergarten students to be able to understand cause and effect, directional language and early programming. I am excited for all of the possibilities!
