My third grade students attend a public school comprised of 51% free and reduced-price lunch and 28% ELL. My classroom will house all the ELL students for the grade level.
Twenty-five precious hearts and minds are left in my care each day.
Each comes from a complicated home life, but knows they are safe in our classroom. With each task we work on building our teamwork skills. Our classroom is becoming a community of eager learners who support each other.
Students will learn to code with colors! Draw OzoCode color codes on paper or a tablet and our Bits use optical sensors to respond—spinning, speeding up and more at our command. Then students can advance with the OzoBlockly editor, which introduces block-based programming. Bits are teacher recommended and used in coding and STEM curricula in 2,000 schools nationwide.
We can print a maze online or open an app game and the challenge lies in using the right combination of OzoCodes to get Bit from start to finish.
The Ozobot website contains endless OzoBlockly games and STEM activities for Bit. We will code with markers and draw color codes that tell Bit what to do, then graduate to OzoBlockly to program Bit’s behavior.
