My Students

I have an amazing class this year. Although they are young (just 5 or 6 years old!) they are already capable of so much! At the beginning of the year, I had several students who did not know any letters or sounds, and the majority only knew a handful. A short 5 weeks later, my students are already working on writing full sentences and starting to read! The growth you see in kindergarten each year is amazing, they never cease to impress me!

Our school is an environmental charter school, so we spend a lot of time thinking about science, especially how we can minimize our impact on the environment.

Anyone who walked into our class would be impressed by my students' ability to sort trash into waste, compost, and recycle. Not only can they do it, they are excited to help the planet by doing so. My students do all things with excitement; they are joyful learners who great each day with open anticipation. I love being the one who gets to teach them so many important things, and would love to be able to give them even more learning experiences with your help!

My Project

I'm so excited to be able to start teaching my students about coding and engineering. We have a small unit about what engineers do, but it focuses mostly on structural things. These bee-bots and mats will help students learn about basic programming and directionality.

Bee-bots are bound to be the belle of the ball during our math and STEM station time!

During our math station time, I am working in small groups to help meet the specific needs of my students. It is critical that during this time, students who are not working with me, are still learning on their own at a station. I just know that the students will love to use these programable bees during this time! One activity I would like to do with these bees is to make an number mat for them to run on. Students would pull a card that has a simple math problem on it, solve it, then program the bee bot to go to that number! What a cool way to integrate engineering into daily class!

To top it all off, our classroom mascot is the "busy bees"! How perfect is that!
