My Students

I am an elementary teacher in a large K-5 elementary school in a high-poverty, urban school district. We have over 750 students. They have many challenges, but they look forward to coming to school because it is a safe place.

Since most of my students don't have access to technology at home, they absolutely love to spend their free time on the various technology learning tools we have in our classroom.

Many of them, regardless of the grade level, look forward to coming to the computer lab.

My Project

I teach in a computer technology classroom. Teaching code is now a regular part of our technology curriculum. It is always challenging trying to find engaging ways to teach coding to my younger students. After my students have completed their initial introductory lessons about coding, they will be introduced to the Code and Go robots. Students will learn hands-on about robotics and programming while working on STEM applications. They will code the robots to move forward, backward, turn around, and even light-up and flash in different colors. The little robots teach them in a fun way so they will remain interested. I will use the games primarily for my Kindergarten and 1st-grade students.

These activity sets and games are a great way for my students to actually apply all of the basic coding skills they have been taught.

They can work collaboratively in small groups in order to follow the lessons. This project is focused primarily on grades K-2.
