My sixth grade students work hard, knowing that hard work makes their dreams come true. Our school has been named a National Title I Distinguished School for closing the achievement gap between student groups. Also, we have been named a National Blue Ribbon School!
I have a vision that my 6th grade students will have fun and choice as they learn math and science using innovative, hands-on activities in an environment that meets some important education trends such as maker movement, 21st-century skills, design thinking and STEM/STEAM.
My students are a diverse group. I hope to help them embrace their differences with respect as they collaborate together on things like building with littleBits, coding with Dash and Dot Robots, and learning math and science.
My 6th grade students look forward to coding with Dash and Dot and Spheros in our classroom. Last year I wrote Donorschoose.org grants so my students would have coding robots to use during STEM stations. My students this year have been able to use them as well. Recently, my students got to see the new Wonder Workshop Cue Robot demonstrated. They loved it! They were crazy about the Cue Robot! The students thought the Cue Robot was even better than Dash and Dot. They liked that it was all black, that it had a male voice mode, that the mode could be changed so it wouldn't crash into the desks and that Java Script could be used to code the Cue Robot. They would love to have a Cue Robot for our classroom!
