I teach in a school in Little Rock Arkansas and we are a Title I school. Our students come from a variety of economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free lunch. Many of my students get a bag full of food for the weekend.
Having flexible seating has really changed the atmosphere in my classroom.
I teach a wiggly group of 4th grades in a very small room. My classroom is made up of students with ADHD, learning disabilities, processing disorders, gifted and talented students, and some in resource.
What is coding? Well, besides the fact that coding, also called programming, is a skill set that students could use for a future career in a world that has a shortage of skilled coders and programmers, coding can help students in their other subject areas as well as math and science.
Coding requires precision and learning to code boost your attention to detail.
The items I want for my students will introduce coding in a fun friendly way. The Dash Coding Robot is a class favorite but with only one robot and 22 students, we need more for everyone top have a chance to use one in a small group. The makey makey will work with our Chrome Books and is another way for us to code in the classroom.
