My Students

Everyday is an adventure in my classroom. Students are excited and eager to learn new material despite the challenges they face outdide of the classroom. I teach second grade at a Title I school in North Carolina. More than half the students in the school receive free or reduced lunch. Students are engaged more when they are given hands-on learning experiences. Botley the Coding Robot will allow my students to engage and learn 21st century skills. Students will learn how to solve problems through writing, math, visualization and collaboration with fellow peers. They will understand that there isn’t always one way to solve problems and that creativity and re-evaluation is important when solving real life challenges.

My Project

Students will collaborate and use critical thinking and problem solving skills to solve challenges with Botley the Coding Robot. Students will learn how to code by guiding the robot though obstacle courses with the programable transmitter. They will create codes so that Botley will follow paths and go around multiple objects. Students will enhance their STEM ( Science, Technology, and Mathematics) skills by working collaboratively to pre-plan and solve problems that Botley the Robot might have. Students will work in groups and or individually to learn how to code and the importance of pre-planning and enhancing completed challenges . All of this will be completed by the student without the use of any screen time.
