I have a bright and inquisitive group of 20 third graders. My students have gelled together nicely over their short 3 and a half years of learning together. Although they haven't been in every class together, they have a sense of respect and camaraderie that deserves acknowledgment. With the right attitude in learning and team-building, I know my students will go far in life.
They are empathetic, risk-takers, fun-havers, and mistake-makers.
They strive to be the best people they can and help each other through the support of their parents, peers, and other people in their life. They are appreciative in all they do and what they receive. They are my bacon bits.
My students will see the importance of coding when they see these inanimate bots come to life. For the majority of my students, this will be the first time they code. It will give them an opportunity to seize the love of programming, which opens up doors for the future. My biggest hope is that this will create a sense of challenge that targets every individual human that touches these robots. Let the problem-solving and grit-grinding begin! As my students discover their new-found talents with these robots, I will task them to share their findings with our school community by linking with buddy classes. They will be able to teach the younger grade levels and seek advice from the older grade levels.
