My Students

The majority of my students are English Language Learners from low-income, immigrant families who qualify for free or reduced-price lunches. They live in small, one-room apartments with shared kitchens and bathrooms. Most of my students are cared for by their grandparents because their parents are too busy making a living. Some even need to work two jobs to make ends meet.

In spite of these hardships, these wonderful students come to school eager to learn!

Although their parents expect them to do well in school, most of the parents feel they cannot help their children with their schooling because of their long work hours and their own limited English speaking skills.

My Project

Computer science is important for the next generation of students. They will need computer and coding skills to succeed. The best way to learn how to code is to practice it.

I want to give my students the Osmo Coding Awbie game to use on the iPad to learn essential coding skills.

The game teaches students how to code as they collect strawberries. The pieces in the game make the computer code easier to understand.

Students learn best by making mistakes. The game teaches students through trial and error. Once students make a mistake, the computer program runs with all the bugs and students can visually see where they made a mistake. Then they can debug the program by fixing the code.

Students can work with a partner to solve the coding problem. Students improve their coding and communication skills as they play a fun game.
