My Students

I teach fourth grade at a Title One school in Michigan. My students are always so excited to learn new things. My goal is to provide them with multiple ways to learn and show their learning. This year, my students have a wide range of abilities and instructional needs. I need ways to help best reach them as learners.

My students are a fantastic group of kids who enjoy learning.

I am on a mission to pass on my love of learning to my students. My classroom is a safe haven for them. I want to provide as many fun and engaging learning opportunities for them as well as having a comforting environment.

My Project

This year, I have a group of students who love to have hands-on activities. They receive some coding experience in their technology class and I would like to extend their learning into our classroom. I have a very diverse group of learners and I am requesting some of the accessories to expand our learning with the Dash Robot.

Coding with Dash means the possibilities are endless!

By allowing students the opportunity to use Dash in the classroom, I hope to inspire more creativity within my students. Creating codes and actually seeing that code come to life with Dash will be exciting for my students. Students will be able to develop problem solving skills too. More importantly, students will be learning and having fun at the same time!

I am asking for various accessories that complement our robot. The card set will provide students with different challenging tasks. The sketch kit will allow students to visually see their coding work. It allows Dash to draw what the students program. Finally, we need a place to store all these wonderful accessories to keep them and our Dash robot safe.
