My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. Our class mission is to be leaders in the classroom, school and at home. We will use the eight habits (adopted from Stephen Covey) to help us grow for the future. I want my students to know I believe in them and they can do anything they set their minds to.

I teach at a Title I school, in North Carolina, where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekend, and our school also runs a food pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can, so they can be successful one day.

My Project

After seeing Dash robots being used for the first time in a kindergarten classroom at my school, my students and I were hooked. My class has experimented with coding in computer lab and in the classroom but we would love to have our very own dash robots to teach us even more!

My students would love to learn how to code using our very own Dash robots.

Once my students got a glimpse of these amazing robots in action I immediately began to think about all of the ways to use the robot in my classroom. In math, I will use the robots to draw shapes, find sums of numbers while teaching addition, and differences while teaching subtraction. My students will also use the robots in reading to spell out sight words and put sentences in order. The possibilities with these robots are endless.

These robots would be a perfect addition to our classroom. Thank you for considering supporting our project.
