Mrs. Kimlinger from Portland OR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Computational Thinking: Super Brain Power!

My students need a subscription to both BrainPop Jr. and Flocabulary in order to access engaging material in science and social studies as well as a library of books about computational thinking that they can access.

My Students

My students are energetic, enthusiastic, and engaged first graders. They are often described in public policy meetings as high-poverty, under-served, at-risk, and so on. To me, they are a delightfully diverse group of curious learners, willing and ready to explore their world.

My school has pledged to focus on STEM as the basis for educating our curious little learners, and they love science, technology, engineering, and math.

Focusing on STEM has helped us engage these awesome students in a way they were not engaged before.

My Project

Learning computational thinking is one of the most important digital-age skills for elementary-age students, even before any technological skills are learned such as keyboarding or coding.

With this project, students will be able to access fun videos to explain concepts they are interested in as well as books that they can explore digital-age skills with.

My students are interested in coding and, while we do not have a formal coding time, I would like them to be able to grab a friend and resources to teach each other and experiment. I hope this will lead to a love of learning new things of all types.
