My students need a Dash and Dot Robot Wonder Pack.
A typical day in our classroom is busy and full of excitement. I try to keep as much of our day as hands-on as possible. I look for ways to incorporate science in all of our content areas. The students are always looking for opportunities to work with and teach each other.
I teach second grade.
My students range in age from 7-8 years old. These children are smart and inquisitive. They are full of joy and wonder. They come to school everyday and love to learn. Some of my students travel over an hour by bus to come to school and another hour on the bus to get home. Their dedication to school at this young age is inspiring. They are so engaged when given the opportunity to work on engineering and science projects. They are hard-working children who take advantage of the technology time they are given at school. I teach at a Title I school, many of my students do not have computers in their homes. They are excited whenever they are given a project that involves the use of technology.
My students were introduced to coding briefly in their technology class. They go to this class bi-weekly. They were amazed at what they could make happen on the screen. I can only imagine what will happen when they are able to see their coding in motion around the classroom. This wonder pack comes with a variety of options for the robots to be able to do. The students will be able to choose what they would like Dash and Dot to do and then work on their coding skills to see this action happen.
The opportunity to work on coding and the use of technology will help my students in all areas of academics.
It will give them the opportunity to make a plan, test it and make improvements as needed. I will be able to create enrichment projects for my students, and the children will be able to learn through play and see their plans come to life.
