My Students

My kindergartners come from many backgrounds with varying educational experiences. My kindergarten class is made up of 26 diverse 5 & 6-year-olds in a southern Arizona urban Title I STEAM (science, technology, engineer, art, math) school. Ninety-nine percent of the students are on the free and reduced lunch program.

The student population in my class is composed of English Language Learners (ELLs) of Hispanic, Burmese, Nepalese, Arabic descent, and Africans, many are refugees.

The majority of these students are from low-income households, living in neighborhood apartments and trailer parks. Many of them are being raised in single-parent households. My parents have limited or no understanding of coding and/or robotics to provide their children the opportunities that I can with these coding robots.

Kindergarten is no longer just for social and emotional development. My students spend most of their day doing activities to prepare them to think, problem solve, and succeed in our future world. They're expected to sit a large part of their day learning academic material, and have little time for active "exploration" at school and home. It's important that they have classroom opportunities to explore coding problems hands-on.

My Project

My students need the Code-a-Pilar and Go Mouse Robots for interactive and hands-on learning within the classroom. These 2 types of robots will provide my students opportunities to critically think how to solve to get the robots from start to finish.

These tools will help students grow their technological interests to fulfill 80% of future job positions using coding technology and engineering skills.

These robots will assist me in offering a creative and fun way to assist my students in building their tech skills. They will help build the basic foundational coding skills without the need of a computer.

My students can connect Code-a-Pilar segments to build an algorithm sequence and instantly get feedback whether their sequence moves it correctly forward, right or left turn. Go Mouse robots and learning board kits will help my students follow step-by-step directions using hands-on coding cards. Changing the coding cards can instantly debug the code. I need AA and AAA batteries to keep these robots problem solving.
