"Learning is an active process. We learn by doing." - Dale Carnegie.
I teach a fun, energetic group of kindergartners with a love of learning.
My students come from diverse backgrounds and bring a variety of experiences into the classroom. They enjoy learning and are always ready and eager to explore and learn something new. Students take an active role in the learning by exploring and using their critical thinking skills daily. My goal is for all of my students to not only meet but exceed the Indiana Academic Standards by creating a student-centered classroom.
Eighty-eight percent of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. The National Student Clearinghouse Research Center states that poverty is the best predictor of college attendance and completion. Their research has also found a good education is seldom available to children living in poverty, but the long-term solution is a high-quality education. Poverty is increasing, but the spending on education is not. The challenges my kindergartners face on a daily basis do not stop them from coming to school with a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn.
My kinders love to learn and are always up for a challenge! They love learning about robots and coding. My kinders enjoy learning their literacy and math skills in a hands on way.
These robots would bring our learning to a whole new level.
Students will use these robots to learn their sight words and math facts. They will also learn about coding and get my students excited about technology and STEM.
My students may be little but they can do things the "big kids" can, too. If we get them excited now about technology and twenty first century skills, they will be coding even bigger things when they are older and will seek out opportunities for STEM jobs.
