My Students

Kindergarten is the beginning of learning. My students come from a high poverty area and are second language learners. 100% students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many students get a bag for weekends to make sure they have food for when they are home. My students have very difficult challenges and may not have the support a teacher would hope they would have to be successful.

These challenges do not stop them from coming to school with a bright smile and an eagerness to learn something new.

In my classroom, students come to school with very limited language but that will not stop them from participating in learning. We have a community-based classroom where we help each other learn difficult concepts and we provide support for each others learning.

My Project

Providing my students with essentail coding skills will help move them away from screens and into building, creativity and engineering while problem solving solutions . Having these lego materials will provide my students time to explore building machines and testing their inventions along the way. With these materials I will have the opportunity to introduce high level skills that will prepare my students for the future of coding. These material will help move my little kinders into the next generation of building robotics. Having these lego materials will provide a time for students to work together on engineering skills and problem solving in a creative way.
