Busy as Bees: Robotics in Kindergarten!

My Students

My kindergarteners are active, kind, talented, and curious students who love to be independent and use technology.

My students live in a low-income neighborhood that surrounds our small Title I school.

Some of our students live in low-income housing, several do not speak English at home, and others have already moved more than once in their young school careers. I want school to be a safe and stable place for my students to learn. They are excited to learn about new technology!

My Project

My students will use Bee-Bots to learn about robotics. They will learn how to program a Bee-Bot. Then they will use the skills they have learned about programing the Bee-Bot to complete literacy tasks. For example, students will use the Bee-Bot and a story sequence map to sequence a story. Story sequencing is not the only skills that my kindergarten students can work on. Some examples of other mats that they would be able to use with the Bee-Bots are sight words, numbers, colors, shapes, and cvc words.

Bee-Bots will allow us to use robotics skills and literacy skills at the same time.

These activities will be highly engaging for all students!
