"What are we learning today?" That's something that I hear from my students every day before they even enter the classroom. No matter what kind of morning they've had, they come to school with an enthusiasm that never ceases to astonish me.
My students are diverse with various learning needs and challenges.
We are a Title I school, helping to meet the needs of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. My students are hardworking, inspired students who amaze me every single day. I look forward to providing them with everything they deserve to have, including a classroom where they can all feel safe, understood and accepted for exactly who they are.
Over the course of the year, we've been building up our supply of materials to learn about circuits and programming. However, we're always finding more great materials that we'd love to include, or things that we run out of over time. This project will help us to replenish some materials like lithium ion batteries, hobby motors, potentiometers, breadboards, and capacitors.
We also came across some really exciting new tools that will help us to continue to dive deeper into programming and circuits.
A touch board along with a speaker will allow us to create programs that can trigger MP3 sounds or utilize a proximity sensor. The Circuit Playground Express will allow us to code various programs using Microsoft's MakeCode app. Conductive paint will let us create all sorts of intriguing artwork that can interact with LED lighting for some exciting possibilities!
By continuing to replenish and expand our programming and circuit supplies, there will by no shorting out of creative energy in this classroom!
