My Students

I have 55 amazing fourth-grade students, which includes special education students, English Language Learners, and intervention students.

They are very enthusiastic about learning and are always eager to explore something new.

They love coming to school every day and always have big smiles on their faces. They attend a wonderful school in Pennsylvania. These students enjoy learning and exploring every day during our math and science classes. All my students learn differently, and this is why I like to have a wide variety of options for them available daily.

My Project

My students are eager to engage in new learning opportunities and different ways to represent content. Students learn early STEM skills while playing and having fun! Botley teaches the student the basics of coding through active play completely screen free promote critical thinking and problem solving skills. The Coding Robots is an engaging, interactive game that teaches the fundamental skills of block coding, all of which are necessary for the future. My students will using Botley Coding Robots to develop problem solving skills through coding. This engaging activity will also help promote critical thinking and problem-solving skills, a great skill to carry them through life.

With your donation of Botley, the student will develop the skills of being inquisitive, hands-on learners that love new opportunities for learning and exploring.
