My Students

A have a group of amazing 5th graders that are eager to learn new things. Technology in the classroom is one thing that engages my students, but living in a rural, lower income area becomes a struggle for them at home. It is also harder for our school to come up with these resources in the classroom.

I want all students to have the same opportunities to use technology that will prepare them for their future careers.

With your help, we can make this happen!

My Project

Coding and creating with Legos are two of my student's favorite activities in our Maker Space classroom. Lego Boost will combine these two activities into one. Lego boost has multiple creations, such as Bernie the Cat, Frankie the Cat and even a guitar that they can build and then use code to make them come to life. We need an iPad available for students to use for this activity as well. We also want the Pizza Co. game to use with our Osmo.

Using this technology will fully engage my students and increase learning.

I am working increase the student to iPad ratio and available technology projects they can work on with so students don't have to wait their turn.
