As a librarian, I am fortunate to work with approximately 600 K-5 students at our Title I school. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and many qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. We have among these are 3 special needs classes. One of the highlights for them is visiting the library each week where they get to inquire and explore topics they are interested in. Both students and staff use the library daily for research, meetings, learning, selecting reading books and various after-school clubs.
Our students are absorbing knowledge and would benefit greatly from resources that help foster critical thinking.
We offer students opportunities to use and develop their critical thinking skills with opportunities to code.
Help me give my students four Coding Awbie coding sets and Osmo bases to introduce them to coding!
Unlike many of the coding resources already out there, coding Awbie uses coding blocks which students can physically touch, making a complex task, tangible and accessible to a variety of kids, including our special needs and our K-2 learners.
These user-friendly blocks will help our youngest learners develop and sharpen their logic, problem solving and collaboration skills through coding.
Coding skills are becoming increasingly important in our digital world, these coding blocks will give students opportunities to manipulate blocks into code to teach kids programming! And even beyond coding, the skills our students learn through coding translate to success in other academic areas throughout the curriculum, including math. Thank you for helping prepare our students for the future!
